According to the National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES), Australia has approximately 17,000 computer science and maths degrees in its total of 8,800.
It also has approximately 3,200 computer engineering degrees.
But the number of computer science students in Australia is relatively small compared to the size of the global computer industry, which has more than 11 million employees.
In the US, the number is just over 3 million.
But for Australian students, computer science is a key career option and is considered to be an excellent starting point for those looking to get their degree.
There are also a number of programs in Australia for people with an interest in the technology sector.
Computer programming is considered a technical skill, but it is also recognised as a subject of interest to those with a wide range of interests, from a love of programming to wanting to pursue a career in IT.
Computer science has become a hot topic in recent years, with the number and diversity of degrees awarded at Australian universities reaching a high point in 2012.
In 2013, there were a record number of applications for computer science degree courses, with 1,934 applications received.
In 2016, there was a record-breaking year for applications, with almost 3,000 applications.
It was a trend that continued in 2017, with more than 3,400 applications for degree courses from computer science applicants.
The number of degree courses awarded in the United Kingdom also rose significantly, from 6,300 in 2013 to 8,200 in 2017.
As the number has increased, so has the popularity of computer programming.
The United Kingdom has had the highest number of computing degrees awarded in 2017 with 2,600, followed by the United States with 1
