Over 100 computer science graduate students arrived earlier this month from over 20 countries around the world—the largest entering class ever for the Computer Professionals Program.
There are now approximately 500 students enrolled in that program, counting those on campus and those currently working in paid practicum positions around the country while finishing their degrees via distance education.
The largest contingent in this group—approximately 35 students—hails from Ethiopia, while there are 17 students from Nepal and eight from Sri Lanka. Other countries represented include Cambodia, China, Colombia, Eritrea, Jordan, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Moldova, Myanmar, the Philippines, Romania, Thailand, Ukraine, and Vietnam.
The previous record entry of Computer Professionals students was 83. Greg Clarke-Johnsen, director of Computer Professionals admissions, said that the larger enrollment may be due in part to having a solid recruiting team that has now been working together for two-and-a-half years. 'They know what they're doing and are very effective,' he said. 'They're now very experienced in dealing with applications.'
The students spend six to eight months taking courses on campus and are then placed in paid practicum positions. Over 100 students and graduates are now working at Microsoft. The average starting salary for the students is $54,000 per year. Entry dates into the program are in February, June, and October.
