US CS Graduate Enrollment Falls in 2003

August 11th, 2005

The CRA Bulletin has an item on an NSF brief describing the state of Science and Engineering graduate enrollment.

“While overall graduate enrollment in science and engineering programs reached an all-time high in fall 2003, it actually declined 3 percent in computer science. CS was the only field to see a drop and this was its first decrease since 1995. In addition, CS experienced the biggest drop (23 percent) among S&E fields in the number of full-time students with temporary visas who were enrolled for the first time.”
