BPCnet.org Releases New Tool in the Statistics and Data Hub


BPCnet.org is happy to announce the newest addition to its Statistics and Data Hub, a resource that brings together sources of publicly available data to support the computer and information sciences and engineering fields. Since its launch in 2020, the Statistics and Data Hub has included several tools for users to download computing-specific data, such as postsecondary computing degrees awarded by institutions and enrollment data at the K-12 level.

Now, users can view and download institution-specific data on postsecondary engineering degrees. In this tool, users can select their state, institution name, and degree type to view a downloadable data table or plot (sourced from U.S. Department of Education Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS)). Data can be further organized by the Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) code, gender, and racial/ethnic identity. Click here to check out the new tool!

These newest updates to the BPCnet.org Statistics and Data Hub were made possible through a new collaboration with the NSF INCLUDES Alliance: Partnerships Launching Underrepresented Students, previously announced in CERP Bulletin.

CRA-WP 2022 Distributed Research Experience for Undergraduates (DREU) – Applications Open!


The CRA-WP Distributed Research Experiences for Undergraduates (DREU) program matches students with a faculty mentor for a summer research experience at the faculty mentor’s home institution. We invite applications from both (a) undergraduate students interested in exploring research in computer science and (b) faculty members interested in being a research mentor.

DREU interns will have the opportunity to be directly involved in a research project and interact with graduate students and professors on a daily basis. This experience is invaluable for those who are considering graduate school; DREU will provide a close-up view of what graduate school is really like and increase interns’ competitiveness as an applicant for graduate admissions and fellowships. Faculty mentors will have the opportunity to work on their research project with new students from other institutions and to mentor future graduate students.
