Traditionally, computing studies occupy two partitions--science and engineering--separated by a line roughly at the computer architecture level. A more effective organization for computer science and engineering requires an intrinsically interdisciplinary framework that combines academic andsystems-oriented computing perspectives. <p>Researchers at the University of Southern California have been developing such a framework, which reaggregates computer science and computer engineering, then repartitions the resulting single field into analysis and synthesis components.The framework is based on the notion that science is foremostabout dissecting and understanding, and engineering is mostly about envisioning and building.</p>
