Abstract

The creation and maintenance of courses (1st cycle and integration 1st
and 2nd cycle) in computer science is of concern to those responsible.
The area is in constant development and, despite the need for very
specialized technicians and almost unemployment zero, it seems that it
is not in the minds of most students who finish high school.

This article describes how secondary education works in Portugal, as
well as the entrance to the Portuguese higher education.

With this study we were able to verify which courses have the most
demand and, on the other hand, those that do not constantly fill all the
vacancies. In this study we verified that in the year 2016-2017 the
students who intend to join the upper insino had 122 courses: 106 Lic-1º
cycle, 15 Integrated Masters and 1 Preparation. In other words, the
choice was made from the Area of Technologies and returned links to
information about 193 courses. We extract courses in which in its
denomination it had the content comput * and informát *. We also added
eight that seemed relevant to us as Management and Information Systems
or information technologies. The basis of our study consists of a 122
courses of 66 different intuitions. We highlight the institutions of
higher education (public and private), denomination of courses and type
(1st cycle, integrated masters or preparation). From these courses we
verify the proofs of access are (with view to numerous clausulus).

The private Universities give little information: so we put them way
out; for the rest: only 59 courses filled all the vacancies. We will
study these 59 courses in more detail: institutions and different names.
Of these, only 46 have course unity are available on-line. We have
studied in detail the curricular units of the first two semesters. We
extract the number of course unit and programming languages (which are)
and study those course unity contents.

Of the 46 courses we presented we extracted ten, the top 10. The choice
of these and not others is related to the number of places being higher
than the other courses, as well as the entry notes. From this 10 courses
we will study course plans, as well as giving emphasis to course unity
those who use programming languages: what programming languages,
paradigms, and how many are used.

In this way we get an overview of the curricula of computer courses in
Portugal, namely what refers to paradigms and programming languages?
