AGENDA
5
Undergraduate CS enrollments 2002-2005
  • The number of new undergraduate majors dropped
    another 21, from 15,950 to 12,532 (see Figure
    7).
  • This follows last years 10 drop in new majors
    and a 23 drop the year before that.
  • Accounting for the fact that more departments are
    reporting to the survey now than did three years
    ago, we effectively have seen a halving of the
    number of new majors entering our programs over a
    three-year period.
  • Total enrollment in Bachelor's programs is down
    nearly 14 from last year and 30 compared to
    three years ago.
  • Taulbee Survey (http//www.cra.org/CRN/articles/m
    ay06/taulbee.html)

Undergraduate CS enrollments 1995-2005

The U.S. ranks 17th in the world for ratio of
science and engineering degrees.
8
Undergraduate CS enrollments 2002-2005
  • it is not yet clear when the decline in our
    undergraduate program enrollments will end.
  • The double-digit percent decrease in bachelors
    production observed this year is likely to
    continue for the next several years. 
  • Nationwide, only one-quarter of 1 percent of
    incoming freshmen women listed computer science
    as a probable major, according to a 2004 survey
    from the Higher Education Research Institute at
    UCLA. Thats down from a high of 4.25 in the
    mid-1980s.
  • Taulbee Survey (http//www.cra.org/CRN/articles/m
    ay06/taulbee.html)

Undergraduate CS enrollments 2002-2005
  • Coupled with the declining representation of
    women in our undergraduate programs, our ability
    to produce a workforce that is sufficiently
    educated technically to meet the needs of the job
    market in computing is being severely challenged.
  • Taulbee Survey (http//www.cra.org/CRN/articles/m
    ay06/taulbee.html)
  • The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated in 2004
    that 1.5 million new computer and IT-related jobs
    are expected to be added to the nations
    workforce by 2012.

10
Myth 1 Software Jobs Have Disappeared
  • There was a slight dip in IT-sector employment
    after 2000.
  • Recent data show that this trend has reversed,
    and that there are now more jobs in this sector
    than at any time in history.
  • Projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics
    indicate strong growth over the next decade

11
IT Jobs Outlook Brightens
  • The study found that, despite intensifying
    competition, offshoring between developed and
    developing countries can benefit both parties.
    The study cited data from the U.S. Bureau of
    Labor Statistics (BLS) which indicates that more
    IT jobs are available today in the U.S. than at
    the height of the dot com boom. This trend is
    evident despite a significant increase in
    offshoring over the past five years. In fact,
    U.S. IT employment in 2004 was 17 higher than in
    1999, and the BLS data reveals that IT jobs are
    predicted to be among the fastest-growing
    occupations over the next decade.

  • MONEY Magazine and Salary.com researched hundreds

    stress-levels and other factors. These careers
    ranked highest.

Model Curriculum for K12 Computer Science
  • Computer science is an established discipline at
    the collegiate and post-graduate levels. Oddly,
    the integration of computer science concepts into
    the K12 curriculum has not kept pace in the
    United States. As a result, the general public is
    not as well educated about computer science as it
    should be, and a serious shortage of information
    technologists at all levels exists and may
    continue into the foreseeable future.

Computer Science Teachers Association
  • The Computer Science Teachers Association is a
    membership organization that supports and
    promotes the teaching of computer science and
    other computing disciplines. CSTA provides
    opportunities for K-12 teachers and students to
    better understand the computing disciplines and
    to more successfully prepare themselves to teach
    and learn.
  • http//csta.acm.org/

22
Purpose of the CSTA
  • Build a strong community of computer science
    educators who share their knowledge.
  • Provide teachers with opportunities for high
    quality professional development.
  • Advocate at all levels for a comprehensive
    computer science curricula.
  • Support projects that communicate the excitement
    of computer science to students and improve their
    understanding of the opportunities it provides.
  • Collect and disseminating research about computer
    science education.
  • Provide policy recommendations to support
    computer science in the high school curriculum.
  • Raise awareness that computer science educators
    are highly qualified professionals with skills
    that enrich the educational experience of their
    students.
