Evaluation Shows US College Computer-Science Enrollment Rising

Enrollment in US college computer science programs now appears to be increasing, according to preliminary findings by the Computing Research Association. The organization publishes an annual report on college computer science enrollment and graduation and released early findings, showing a 22 percent increase in bachelor’s degree enrollment from 49,564 students in 2011-2012 to 60,453 in 2012-2013. The organization also reports that from 2012 to 2013, the number of doctoral degrees in computer science increased by 6.8 percent, although enrollment in PhD programs was down 1.2 percent. In the US, universities awarded 1,991 computer-science doctoral degrees, the highest number ever reported. The full 2013 Taulbee Report is scheduled for publication in the May 2014 issue of Computing Research News, which the organization publishes. (SD Times)(Computing Research Association)
