Final Report on National Science Foundation "Women in Engineering Program," July 1, 1976-July 8, 1978.
Dorf, Richard C.
Objectives and results are given of a program designed to prepare women for employment in engineering at a level comparable to current B.S. graduates. The program endeavored to create a learning situation in which rigorous academic standards would be maintained, while at the same time taking into account the realities of the lives of re-entry women. The format allowed women to work full-time while having an intensive review of mathematics and physics, followed by a series of 7 engineering courses. Most of the original objectives were achieved.
