Lane, Melissa J.
This report was developed by the National Science Foundation to focus attention on a particular field of engineering. It addresses the human resources and funding for mechanical engineering programs through several perspectives. The first major section, "Personnel," discusses employment levels and trends, salaries, sectors of employment, jobs in private industry, primary work activities, demographic characteristics, labor market indicators, and mechanical engineers with doctorates. The second section, "Education Pipeline," relates to undergraduate enrollment, earned degrees, graduate enrollment, and characteristics of recent degree recipients. The final section, "Funding," discusses federal funding, industry, and colleges and universities. The appendices identify and briefly describe the programs of the Division of Science Resources Studies and their major data collection efforts that have contributed to this report. (TW)
