The paper presents an example of a Computer Science Curriculum redesigned in 2013 to, among other requirements, reflect important expectations of the IEEE/ACM CS Curriculum 2013 Recommendations. Among the advantages of the proposed are professional orientation, balance of fundamentals with an integrated core and advanced elective coursework, integration of design and evaluation aspects across the curriculum, a team based capstone project experience, and the longest chain of courses (including all pre-requisites) of only six semesters. Furthermore the elective CS coursework reflects three general options (possibly overlapping): a) electives grouped for three distinct professional certificates in the CS major (Security, Software Engineering, and Games Programming), b) Internship of up to a year of professional practice, and c) rich choice of contemporary CS electives.
