Abstract With over 50 years of computer science in existence, a great effort has been spent on designing the best curricular for educating computer scientists, educating computing professionals, as well as educating users of computers. In spite of this, there has not been in evidence an approach to creating a flexible university environment, which supports a flow between those three basic and different types of computing education. This paper presents a model of integrated computing education which allows for: obtaining different level of computing knowledge and proficiency, fast and flexible upgradability of computing skills, adding computing knowledge and skills to knowledge already possessed in another discipline. Finally the model recognizes the value of Prior Learning Professional Experience (PLPE) as a factor in computing education.
