"Quebrando Fronteras": Trends among Latino and Latina Undergraduate Engineers
Camacho, Michelle Madsen; Lord, Susan M.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v10 n2 p134-146 Apr 2011
Engineering, a field that has shaped the world's industrial and technological base, is ripe for an influx of Latino undergraduate students. Given U.S. Latino population increases, what is the trajectory of Latino participation in engineering education? Using an interdisciplinary lens, we critically examine Latino trends in undergraduate engineering education in the United States. We find that Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) are particularly successful at graduating Latino engineers and propose explanatory analyses. (Contains 2 figures, 1 table, and 3 notes.)
