Graduation Rates in Accredited Engineering Schools, 1983-84.
Miranda, Luis A.; Ruiz, Esther
In 1983-84, for the twelfth consecutive year, the number of Black, Hispanic, and American Indian engineering graduates increased. And for the first time since the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering began its work, the number of Black graduates surpassed 2,000. Other highlights of the 1983-84 data are: (1) 3,817 Black, Hispanic and American Indian students were awarded B.A.'s in engineering; (2) 30 universities/colleges produced 40 or more Black, Hispanic, and American Indian B.A. graduates; (3) 26 universities/colleges produced 20 or more Black B.A. graduates; and (4) 23 universities/colleges produced 20 or more Hispanic B.A. graduates. Following a summary of graduation rate data, six tables present that data in detail. Table 1 presents a comparison of B.A. graduates from differing ethnic groups by State. Table 2 presents a list of 30 colleges and universities that produced 40 or more minority engineers. Table 3 lists 26 colleges that graduated 20 or more Black engineers. Table 4 lists 23 colleges that graduated 20 or more Hispanic engineers. Table 5 illustrates the rate of minority engineers from 1969-1984, and Table 6 provides a complete breakdown of minority B.A. graduates in accredited engineering schools in 1983-1984. (RDN)
