1 of 10

•World ranking - first. Cambridge, Massachusetts.

•Founded in 1861.

•Acceptance rate of 7.7%, and an enrolment of 11,200.

Computer science is growing in both popularity and demand. Graduates with at least a fundamental understanding of the subject (and especially coding and programming) are well ahead of the pack.

The United States doesn’t have a monopoly on good schools to study computer science - grabbing “only” six of the top ten schools in the world - but it still offers many excellent programs across the country. The United Kingdom (University of Cambridge at 4th and University of Oxford at 7th), Switzerland (ETH Zurich), and even Singapore (National University of Singapore) all make to the list of the ten best universities for the subject. Regardless of where, computer science remains a top discipline, and Forbes lists the average starting salary at $60,000 USD, while PayScale lists a mid-career salary for the subject at around $102,000 USD. Definitely nothing to sneeze at in terms of earning potential, and the future looks bright as we rely more and more on computers and technology in our day-to-day lives.

Rankings taken from the QS World University Rankings, Computer Science and Information Systems, and all statistics correct up to the most current data sets.
