Women continue to be underrepresented among engineers and scientists in the Department of Defense, in spite of increases in the numbers of women obtaining academic degrees in these fields. The Army is attempting to meet this challenge with special programs to acquaint students with government job opportunities, some of which are described in the paper. It is the unanimous conclusion that although there are some roadbocks for women along the path of increasing career status and responsibility, just as there are in the private sector, there are significant overriding advantages for the young woman with a technical background who is willing to accept a challenge and who is willing to go after what she wants. There is a wealth of opportunities for success and career satisfaction in either a military or civilian Army career.
