We propose a new model for IT education based on engineering principles and in line with the latest advancement in information science. In this paper, we justify the needs for such a discipline and outline the science requirements that would distinguish it from IT training programs. The first step therefore is to determine the appropriate science foundation for an `information-centered' curriculum and, based on this foundation, create a comprehensive curriculum.
