    This paper presents factual and estimated data of the representation of women and minorities in the engineering profession based on census data, membership information from technical societies, and student enrollments. The representations for women and minorities in engineering are then evaluated in relation to their position in the total U. S. population. The ethnic minorities include blacks, Spa...

    There are both similarities and differences in the circumstances and problems faced by women and members of ethnic minority groups when considering engineering as a career. This paper focuses on aspects of both, centering primarily on comparisons between the situations of black males and white females as a representative of the two largest minority groups in engineering today. Some references to A... View full abstract»

    There are marked differences between Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, Spanish-speaking people and other ethnic minority groups as they relate to attracting, recruiting and retaining these students in engineering curricula and in preparing them for productive and satisfying careers as engineers. For example, educational institutions must radically improve the educational delivery system for the Chicano, th... View full abstract»

  • Attracting and Motivating the American Indian Student into Engineering and Technology

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 12 - 15
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (885 KB)  

    After examining the inadequately low enrollment of American Indians in studies leading to degrees in Engineering and Engineering Technology, this paper attempts to discuss the reasons for this shortage. It also suggests methods to encourage, motivate, and enable Native American youth to start meaningful studies in these fields. However, to succeed with these methods, a constructive input must come... View full abstract»

    Financial support for minority engineering education must be provided if a 10-fold increase in minority engineering graduates is to be achieved. This paper analyzes the financial requirements as well as the possible sources of financial support. Sources of financial support include the family, student, educational institution, government, foundations, and employers. The author recommends that empl... View full abstract»

    This paper analyzes many of the social, economic, and educational impedances that have retarded the progress of minorities in their efforts to enter higher education generally and engineering in particular. The author argues that now is the time for the professional engineering schools, the professional societies, and industry to look beyond those social, economic, and educational impedances and, ...

    There is a national imperative to forge a productive engineering career ladder from the barrios, ghettos and reservations of this nation to the boardrooms and upper management positions of American industry. Creation of exemplary systems to provide minorities a sound engineering education, meaningful post-graduate employment, and assignments to increasingly challenging positions-all critical steps...

  • The Colleges Can Locate Qualified Minority Students for Engineering Education

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 43 - 47
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1092 KB)  

    A greater effort must be made by both industry and the engineering schools if we are to educate more minority engineers in the next ten years. This paper approaches that challenge from the viewpoint of locating qualified minority engineering candidates for the colleges. Recruitment and admissions are recognized as related operations but they are treated independently and pragmatically in this pape... View full abstract»

    Three programs based on engineering-related employment as a means for enhancing traditional engineering education are described in this paper. The examples illustrate how business and education-working together-can make a significant impact on alleviating the shortage of minority representatives in the engineering profession.

  • Co-operative engineering education-a means for meeting a national need to increase the number of black engineering graduates

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 52 - 55
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (724 KB)  

    This paper outlines a co-operative engineering curriculum involving a "pre-co-op work/experience" immediately following graduation from high school. The University of Tennessee has found this an effective means of attracting and motivating more minority students to study engineering. The paper outlines the program including a typical work/study schedule and includes comments of participants about ... View full abstract»

  • The Dual Degree (3-2 Plan) Approach to Educating Minority Engineers

    Publication Year: 1974 , Page(s): 56 - 58
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (624 KB)  

    Dual degree programs or 3-2 plans as they are sometimes called have been in existence since the 1930' s. Only a few such plans, however, seemed to be productive. Since so many blacks attend the traditional Black liberal arts colleges, and since these colleges fulfill many of the needs of Black youth so effectively, it behooves the engineering educator to look to the Black liberal arts colleges as ...

  • Minority Graduate Education

    The fact that so few minority engineers graduate each year suggests that the potential for action at the graduate level is limited at this time. Beyond the small number of baccalaureate graduates, however, there are other reasons that deter many minorities from entering graduate school including attractive starting salaries at bachelor's level; accumulative debts from financing their undergraduate...

    The author shares his personal experiences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute relating to all aspects of the campus life of black students both at the graduate and undergraduate level. There are certain clear-cut guidelines that must be developed if any program is going to work and not only increase the number of minority students entering engineering programs, but also improve the probability of...

  • Black Engineering Schools

    To doubt whether or not predominantly black institutions have a role to play in American life is to not understand the pluralistic nature of American society. Engineering education has played an important role in the past development of these universities and will play an even larger role in the years ahead due to the capacity of engineering to penetrate so many other fields. This paper presents a... View full abstract»
