US gets maximum science students from India


Washington, DC: India with 67,800 students accounts for largest number of foreign students in science and engineering in the United States and is followed by China with 53,740 pupils, the National Science Foundation has said.

India has maintained its significant lead over China and other countries despite the fact that in the last one year, new enrollment from India in Science and Engineering dropped by 17 percent and those from China jumped by 25 percent.

Two countries — India with 68,000 S&E students and China with 54,000 – accounted for almost half (47 percent) of all foreign S&E students (258,950) in the United States in December 2009, the National Science Foundation said.
