"In 2008, about 568,000 foreign students (those holding temporary visas) studied at U.S. universities and colleges, 248,000 of them in science and engineering (S&E). […]This InfoBrief addresses trends in foreign enrollment at all levels in S&E fields as well as in all fields in U.S. institutions of higher education through fall 2009. Using data from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS), this InfoBrief examines changes in S&E enrollment by level, field, and country of origin from fall 2006 to fall 2009."
