Between 2002 and 2012, the number of bachelor's degrees earned in the physical sciences grew by 47%; in engineering, the number increased by 33%. The number of Hispanics earning degrees in these disciplines grew even faster: 78% in the physical sciences and 64% in engineering. Though the growth in the physical sciences was larger, about five times more Hispanics earned degrees in an engineering field in 2012 than in the physical sciences.
