NACME Statistical Report 1986.
Miranda, Luis A.; Ruiz, Esther
This statistical report summarizes data on enrollment and graduation of minority students in engineering degree programs from 1974 to 1985. First, an introduction identifies major trends and briefly describes the Incentive Grants Program (IGP), the nation's largest privately supported source of scholarship funds available to minority engineering students. The remainder of the report, divided into four sections, consists mainly of tables. Section 1 provides data on undergraduate enrollment and graduation by State and institution from 1974-75 to 1984-85. Section 2 presents 12 tables containing selected data, broken down by such categories as ethnicity, state, institution, and students' area of specialization (civil, chemical, electrical, and mechanical engineering). Section 3 provides data on IGP recipients (by gender, ethnicity, and discipline). Section 4 is a complete directory of university level minority engineering program directors. Since 1974, minority enrollment and graduation has increased, but the need to further increase both enrollment and retention is apparent. (KH)
