Engineering and Technology Degrees, 1980. Part I - By School. Summary Data by School, Curriculum Group, and Degree Level.
Howley, Barbara Ann; Bonadonna, Rosanna
Data on 1980 engineering and technology degrees by schools, curriculum group, and degree level are presented. Degree data for each school are arranged in tabular form with columns for the 21 most prominent curriculum groups, totals for the school, and information on each school's accreditation and control status. There are separate tables for each of four degree levels in engineering, four in engineering technology, and four in industrial technology. At the end of each table are summaries of the number of special categories of students; i.e., women, foreign nationals and four minority groups (black, Hispanic, American Indian, and Asian/Pacific). For engineering degrees, data are presented from 288 schools that offer the degree at the bachelor's level or higher; the data are essentially complete for all engineering schools in the United States. In some cases curricula have been grouped under generic headings, rather than under the title reported by the school, as only 21 curricula categories are available for reporting purposes. The engineering technology and industrial technology tables show data for selected schools, including all schools on the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology accreditation lists for 1979. Unlike the engineering degrees, the technology degree totals do not represent national totals because they include only selected schools responding to the survey. (SW)
