Abstract : The first Ada course at Jersey City State College was taught three years ago. Since that time, the use of Ada on our campus has expanded considerably. We now offer a variety of Ada courses and applications of Ada have been incorporated into many other computer courses such as Software Engineering and Systems Programming. Under a contract with Fort Monmouth we (1) have established an Ada Technology Center, (2) have produced two training courses for Army use, (3) are currently developing case study extensions of these courses and (4) are exploring the feasibility of using CAI for training. We have established a Liaison with local industry to explore mutually beneficial ventures and in the near future, expect to offer special seminars for management, scientists, engineers and college faculty. We are also considering ways we can use Ada as a first or second course in the curriculum along with some software engineering concepts. Our goal is to put students in touch with cutting edge technology and realistic problems as soon as possible. (Author)
