This paper addresses the topic of women who are now engineering educators. It examines their progression through the academic ranks, their status, and the outlook for the immediate future, both in terms of their regular academic duties and their prospects for university administration. Strategies for affirmative action in connection with promotion, retention, and tenure are suggested and justified, as are related strategies for motivating some faculty women engineers to administrative positions. It is concluded that women have the necessary potential and that substantive changes in traditional faculty and administrative attitudes will be needed to implement such change.
