Abstract [en]

A three semester, 60-credit course package in the topic of Administrative Data Processing (ADP), offered in 1966 at Stockholm University (SU) and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) is described. The package had an information systems engineering orientation. The first semester focused on datalogical topics, while the second semester focused on the infological topics. The third semester aimed to deepen the students' knowledge in different parts of ADP and at writing a bachelor thesis. The concluding section of this paper discusses various aspects of the department's first course effort. The course package led to a concretisation of our discipline and gave our discipline an identity. Our education seemed modern, "just in time", and well adapted to practical needs. The course package formed the first concrete activity of a group of young teachers and researchers. In a forty-year perspective, these people have further developed the department and the topic to an internationally well-reputed body of knowledge and research. The department has produced more than thirty professors and more than one hundred doctoral degrees.
