  • Combined courses ‘improve computer science diversity’

    Times Higher Education - 04/06/2017

    At present just 14.1 per cent of computer science majors at US universities are women, while only 3.2 per cent are African-American and 6.8 per cent are Hispanic, Carla Brodley, dean of Northeastern University’s College of Computer and Information Science, told Times Higher Education’s Young Universities Summit at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane.

    “This situation has actually got worse since I graduated in 1982 when the proportion of women students in computer science was about 30 per cent,” said Professor Brodley at the event, which runs from 5 to 7 April.
