Foreign students now a majority in computer science grad schools

Patrick Thibodeau | March 12, 2013
The majority of students in computer science department graduate programs are from overseas, and that percentage is rising, according to data from the Computing Research Association.

Youssef believes U.S. graduate programs will maintain their global edge for the foreseeable future, but he said other countries -- notably Singapore -- are investing heavily in their higher education capabilities.

"Unless we remain competitive ourselves, we stand to lose some of our international population to other countries and universities," said Youssef. Key to staying competitive will be the availability of research funding from the federal government.

In the current budget-cutting climate in Washington, research funding is a concern. "As long as there is enough funding available, we will remain on top," he said.
