Partly because of continued strong employer demand for computer science
majors and partly because of the collapse of opportunities elsewhere,
the number of students choosing to major in computer science has
increased significantly this year, both at Stanford and at other
universities in the United States. Over the last couple of months,
there has been a fair amount of press coverage of this rebound in
student numbers. This page contains several links to articles about
- The Computing Research Association report on the rebound, March 16, 2009.
(Computer Science Majors Increase at Most Significant Rate Since Dot Com
- John Markoffs story in the New York Times about the
CRA report on March 17.
(Computer Science Programs Make a Comeback in Enrollment)
- A piece in the CIO online magazine from the same day.
(Computer Science Major Is Hot Again)
- An interview on KCBS radio that was picked up in a number of places.
- Steve Lohrs piece in the Week in Review section of
the New York Times for April 12.
