College of Computing Enrollment Increases 13.6% in One Year

The College of Computing is pleased to share that enrollment in computing programs has grown 13.6% over last year, marking the second consecutive year of greater than 10% growth, and 95% growth in computing programs since 2014. Total fall 2022 computing enrollment is 993.

“This isn’t a fluke. It continues a decade-long trend of computing enrollment growth at Michigan Tech, which is due to the hard work of everyone in the College of Computing, along with our colleagues in enrollment management, marketing, and the registrar’s office,” said Dennis Livesay, the Dave House Dean of Computing.

Like the rest of campus, the biggest gains are in graduate programs, with College of Computing graduate enrollment jumping 60.5%. There are notable gains in all programs, led by 300% growth in the MS in Health Informatics program. The MS in Data Science enrollment grew by 85.7%, and the MS in Mechatronics increased its enrollment by more than 39%. Total graduate student enrollment is 183 students.

Enrollment in undergraduate programs grew 6.4%, with the largest gains in our two newest programs. The BS in Mechatronics grew 78.9% and the BS in Cybersecurity grew 47.4%. Total fall undergraduate student enrollment is 810 students.

The chart below illustrates the historical growth trend in computing programs at Michigan Tech since 2014.

The Michigan Tech College of Computing, established in 2019, is the first and only academic unit in Michigan dedicated solely to computing. It is one of only a few such colleges in the nation. The College of Computing offers bachelor’s and graduate degree programs in the computing disciplines.
