An intake of 90 students last month into the Computer Professionals Program set another record for total enrollment at the University.

According to Ron Barnett, dean of admissions, there are now over 1,200 students enrolled, the highest the University has ever had. He said enrollment has doubled over the last three years and tripled since 2000. Also, the number of new students for the current semester was the largest ever spring intake.

The M.S. in Computer Science is the largest of the University's programs with 633 students, comprising 183 on campus and another 450 either completing Curricular Practical Training or about to start. There is almost a 100 percent success rate for students to find well-paid Curricular Practical Training positions.

'It's a very successful program all-around,' said Greg Clarke-Johnsen, director of the M.S. in Computer Science admissions. 'The program has such a great reputation with IT companies.'

Mr. Clarke-Johnsen believes the success of the program is a combination of an effective marketing strategy along with word-of-mouth recommendations from students. He says it's a win-win situation for all involved in the program.

'It produces great results—the students really appreciate the caliber of teaching and the faculty enjoys teaching the brilliant students,' said Mr. Clarke-Johnsen. 'And once the students start Curricular Practical Training the employers really appreciate the caliber of students.'
