A decade ago the general public had a very nebulous concept of an engineer. It ranged from one who drove a train to one who collected garbage-a sanitation engineer. Those who were more knowledgeable about engineers still looked upon them as people doing a highly specialized job but who had little other talent. Although engineering has gained prestige and made fantastic contributions to technology during the last decade, there still exist some very great inequities. One of the most significant of these is engineering education as it relates to the black female and to other minority groups studying both for an undergraduate and a graduate degree in some field of engineering.
