CS Bachelor's Degree Production Set for Decline

Each year, CRA conducts a survey of the PhD-granting CS/CE departments in the US and Canada. The results for US CS bachelor's degree production and enrollments are now available.


Bachelor's production increased in 2003/2004 at the lowest rate (5 percent) since the mid-1990s. Degree production by the top schools declined slightly from the previous year.

The number of new CS majors declined for the fourth straight year. The number of students that declared CS as their major in the Fall of 2004 is 39 percent lower than it was in the Fall of 2000.

Enrollments have declined by 7 percent in each of the past two years.
