From the Iowa City Press-Citizen comes this article about the declining enrollment of computer science college students in the US.
However, numbers show college students appear to be losing interest.
At UI, 358 undergraduate and graduate students majored in computer science in fall 2004 compared to 556 students in fall 2000. That’s a decline of 198 students, or 36 percent, records show.
Nationwide, the number of newly declared computer science majors has decreased 39 percent from fall 2000 to fall 2004, from 16,000 to about 10,000 declared majors, according to the Computing Research Association based in Washington D.C.
