Abstract

This paper analyses Dutch accreditation reports in the field of information and communication technology (ICT) to assess the degree of reported involvement of the professional field in the curricula of universities of applied sciences. Qualitative content analysis of the reports of all the ICT programs in the country indicates loose coupling in reporting on mechanisms of interaction. This means that whereas the involvement of the professional field is strongly suggestive at the strategic levels, there is an underrepresentation of university-industry interaction on operational levels which suggests the need to explore the real interaction taking place between the professional field and the universities of applied sciences, and possible implications for the future of the profession.
