It may seem obvious that the health of your engineering program depends strongly on your international student pipeline: since 1995 the number of international students studying graduate science and engineering has been on the rise while the number of U.S. students has steadily declined. In disciplines like electrical engineering, the increase in foreign nationals has reached as high as 270 percent.
But has the international student enrollment bubble started to burst? And what does that mean for your program? Your research? Your faculty?
