The huge increase in university graduates from the BRIC countries in recent decades signals their economies' growing global competitiveness. The key for the BRICs' global competitiveness, however, lies less in the number of BRIC graduates than in their quality. Using multiple sources of data gathered from each BRIC country from 2008-2011 and a production function approach, the chapter assesses the evolving capacity of BRIC higher education systems to produce qualified engineering and computer science graduates and compares developments in the quality of undergraduate programs in those fields across elite and non-elite higher education tiers in the BRIC countries. The analysis suggests that in all four countries, a minority of engineering and computer science students receives high quality training in elite institutions while the majority of students receive low quality training in non-elite institutions.

Keywords:   undergraduate education, research productivity, value added, production function approach, human resource capacity, elite universities, non-elite institutions, PH.D graduates, institutional quality, research spending
