Computer science graduating class of 2007 smallest this decade

But turnaround possible as new enrollments show signs of leveling off

“March 5, 2008 (Computerworld) Enrollments in computer science programs, which plunged after the dot-com bust, may have leveled off, according to new data from the Computing Research Association (CRA). The group follows year-over-year enrollment and graduate trends at 170 Ph.D.-granting institutions.”

Have we hit the bottom of the curve this year and can we start seeing improvements in CS department enrollments? Will the current economic situation in the US have a positive or negative impact on Computer Science enrollments. Most trends that get cited on a regular basis indicate the IT job market to have positive growth, indicating new job opportunities should open up for recent graduates in the field.
