Society is operating with software and a new digital era through the Internet of Things started. A variety of fields are being in conjunction with each other based on computing. As problems in real life become more complicated and communication based on various knowledge and problem solving skills are emphasized, these changes are reflected in the curriculum. These changes started from overseas in advance then Korea includes SW education in elementary and secondary education through curriculum revision of 2015. On the other hand, SW education for university students just started after the curriculum revision of elementary and secondary education. The new SW education highlights and develops Computational Thinking beyond programming and it will be a key for the future. Therefore, this study analyzed trends of Computational Thinking and examples of CT courses in Universities. Suggestions and ideas for instructional model to develop Computational Thinking were discussed.
