Who Grants the Most BS and PhD Degrees in CS?

December 6th, 2006

diplomaThe Computing Research Association reports on results from the latest NFS data on Computer Science degree production in the US. Specifically, the 30 US institutions that awarded the most bachelor’s degrees in computer science in 2003/20004, followed by one for those that awarded the most PhDs in 2004/2005. We were very pleased to see that UMBC made both lists. We are seventh for undergraduate degrees produced and tied for eighteenth for PhD production. Not surprisingly, the top ten undergraduate positions are dominated by non-research institutions such University of Phoenix at number one. Overall, the University of Maryland System shows very well with three institutions on the top undergraduate list (UMUC #6, UMBC #7 and UMCP #9) and two on the PhD list (UMCP #12 and UMBC #18)
