Computer science and math degrees are on the rise.
And, as of May, the U.S. has the nation’s largest number of computer science and mathematics majors.
The new report, “The Future of Computer Science and Math in America,” by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, estimates that by 2021, the number of students who pursue computer science or math degrees will be nearly 8 million, up from 7.2 million in 2021.
The report, which has not been released yet, does not include the number that pursue a degree in natural science.
But it says that the number is increasing by 4 percent annually, while the number pursuing a degree that focuses on the social sciences is increasing about 7 percent annually.
The data suggests that the increase in computer science students may be partly driven by an increase in the number and complexity of courses offered, said Matthew J. Lutz, the report’s lead author and an associate professor of computer sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Luthu said the growth is also driven by students who are pursuing a bachelor’s degree or higher in computer or computer science.
The number of student-faculty ratio is also up.
In 2021, more than 40 percent of computer and computer science faculty were women, up 8 percent from 2021, according to the report.
The proportion of women in computer and information science is also on the upswing, with the proportion increasing from about 13 percent in 2021 to 19 percent in 2019.
The gender gap in the field is also narrowing.
In the mid-1990s, there were about 1,200 women in the computer science field and about 4,500 in information science, the survey said.
The ratio of women to men in the fields has decreased by about 5 percentage points, from 15 percent to 14 percent, over the past decade.
The rise in computer sciences is especially significant for students who do not plan to pursue a bachelor of science in the future.
About 18 percent of students in computer, computer engineering and information sciences are considering a computer science degree in 2021, up slightly from 2020, the study said.
About 25 percent of the students are considering an associate’s degree in computer systems, about 4 percent in information systems, and about 7.5 percent in other computer science, according the survey.
While the number has remained fairly stable since 2020, computer science degrees are still falling short of the number needed to secure a job in the United States.
In 2020, about 12 percent of engineering and computer scientists had computer science majors, according, according a report from the National Science Foundation, but by 2021 that number has fallen to 9 percent.
About 13 percent of those who did not have a bachelor in computer engineering or computer information sciences were computer science major, according.
The number of engineering students with a computer and computing major has increased from 3.4 percent in 2020 to 5.4 in 2021 and 7.1 in 2022.
