Shortages in meeting employment demands exist in the number of U.S. citizens earning undergraduate and advanced degrees in engineering fields essential to economic growth and national security such as systems engineers, cyber security, software developers, materials science engineering, and Ph.D.’s in nuclear and electrical engineering. Thanks to funding from the NSF, APLU examined this topic and examined recent trends in engineering degrees awarded at national and institutional levels to determine areas of growth among various groups, changes in racial, ethnic and gender diversity in engineering.
