View as: Print Mobile App Share:

The number of undergraduate students majoring in computer science increased 14 percent over the last two years, reversing the steep decline in computer science enrollment experienced during the previous decade. The Computing Research Association (CRA) reported these results as part of a nationwide study of 185 major universities.

Conducted each fall since 1974, the Taulbee Survey is the principal source of information on the enrollment, production, and employment of Ph.D.s in computer science and computer engineering, and in providing salary and demographic data for faculty in those disciplines in North America. Statistics given include gender and ethnicity breakdowns.
