    Abstract

    Becoming a (computer) scientist involves more than learning knowledge and skills. The development of the professional attitude towards the discipline and the professional beliefs can be seen as a process of enculturation. In this study attitudes and beliefs of Computer Science students of the first, second and third Bachelor year, are compared with the beliefs and attitudes of the faculty of the department. The study shows enculturation at some aspects: attitudes and beliefs change into the direction of those of the faculty. At some other aspects, however, change occurs in the opposite direction. For a series of aspects, students halfway the first year already have attitudes and beliefs similar to those of the faculty.
