Interest in computer science continues to grow among undergraduates, according to a survey conducted by the Computing Research Association. The number of students pursuing computer science majors rose nearly 10% in the 2011-2012 academic year, marking the fourth straight year of increases. The association reported a 10% enrollment gain last year as well.
