Report: Colleges aren’t producing enough computer science graduates

A new report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine indicates that college computer science programs aren’t producing enough graduates to fill the growing demand for employees in computer science-related fields.

The report recommends that universities and colleges begin allocating more resources into their computer science departments, attempt to increase interest in these programs among the student population, recruit more women and minorities and build partnerships with professionals working in the field.

These efforts will allow schools to adequately educate more students and meet the demand for computer science professionals.
