Computer science is becoming a hot topic at the Texas A&M campus.
Now, a new report suggests computer science is actually getting a lot of attention.
It comes from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Board.
The report, titled The State of Computer Science at Texas A &M University, is based on surveys of the more than 3,600 students who took the College Board’s computer science assessment.
It also asks students to answer questions about their interests, careers and how much they study in each subject.
The results were released Friday by the College of Engineering.
The Texas A-M system has a student body of more than 8,000 students.
The College of Arts and Sciences has about 7,500 students.
The study found that more than 85 percent of Texas A students took computer science at some point in their college career.
Computer science programs at the two schools are comparable.
The report found that computer science has become a priority for the College Of Engineering.
The study found about 1 in 5 Texas A student-athletes are enrolled in computer science.
Students were asked how they felt about computer science in the state of Texas.
More than a third of respondents said computer science was a big part of their life and were very satisfied with the quality of their classes.
About 1 in 6 students said they were not satisfied with their education.
Students who attended Texas A, Arts and Science said they enjoyed the breadth of knowledge available in computer sciences.
More than 3 in 10 students at Texas Tech said computer programs at their school were top quality.
About 10 percent of students at the College and Arts said they felt like they were the best students at their college.
The majority of students said their school had a strong reputation for research and engineering.
About 6 in 10 said computer courses were good for their career.
Students at Texas-based Texas Tech were more satisfied with life overall than students in other states.
About 40 percent of A&Ms students said the quality and direction of their college was the most important factor in their choice.
About 10 percent said they preferred Texas A. About 7 in 10 at the Arts and sciences said computer and engineering programs were the most exciting and challenging in their school.
