The number of U.S. computer science majors, was up almost 10 percent in the 2011-2012 academic year according to the Computing Research Association (CRA). In addition, the number of graduates awarded U.S. bachelor's degrees has been on the increase since 2010 and up almost 13 percent in 2011 in schools that participated in the survey for the past two years.

The CRA, which is an association of more than 200 academic departments of computer science, computer engineering, and related fields, suggest that "growth in enrollment is being constrained at institutions not by student interest, but by enrollment caps in place in university computer science departments."
