In the current University economic environment, ICT Schools are under pressure to reduce the scope of their offerings and to simultaneously increase research output. The UTAS School of Computing and Information Systems was recently administratively reviewed and it was recommended to replace the current undergraduate degrees, a Bachelor of Computing and a Bachelor of Information Systems, with a single degree and that the number of undergraduate units be reduced from fifty to thirty. This paper describes a process developed to meet these requirements through stakeholder-led curriculum development efforts that clearly identifies career roles and required skills appropriate for a modern ICT university degree.
