Rolle der Hochschulen

It is not the task of the University to offer what society asks for, but to give what society needs.

The programmer should not ask how applicable the techniques of sound programming are, he should create a world in which they are applicable; it is his only way of delivering a high-quality design.

Machine capacities now give us room galore for making a mess of it. Developing the austere intellectual discipline of keeping things sufficiently simple is in this environment a formidable challenge, both technically and educationally.
