    Biomedical Engineering (BME), the application of engineering concepts and technology to living systems, is expected to experience explosive growth in the next decade. The effective introduction of technology, by well trained engineers, will alter the practice of medicine and made access to the health care system viable for all 220,000,000 United States residents. The activities of the biomedical r... View full abstract»

    The thesis of this paper is that the junior high school years are a key time in the development of orientation towards careers. It is suggested that since women are so grossly underrepresented in the engineering profession, efforts to attack the problem should include work with students at this period in their lives. A team-taught discussion of engineering as an interesting and vital career for wo... View full abstract»

    Engineers can play a special role in society. Working in industry, the corporation's sphere of influence can act as a lever for a contributing professional individual. Hence, the engineer is able to exert a greater force on the world than most other people. With technology carrying us away at a rapid (and some think devastating) rate, the need for socially responsible professional people is becomi... View full abstract»

    Information about women in technical majors is almost non-existent. That fact plus the need for more data motivated this research. The sample was all women who entered the University of Minnesota's Institute of Technology between 1961 and 1970. A male comparison sample with academic ability/achievement levels equivalent to those of the women was also selected. Data gathered included pre-entrance i... View full abstract»

    As the number of women becomes a significant component of the student body in engineering schools, engineering educators will have to consider ways and means to provide these students with the best possible training, both in technical areas and in professionalism. Based on personal experiences as a student and a professor of electrical engineering, a range of issues relevant to the educational pro... View full abstract»

  • Minority Women in Engineering Schools

    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 ... View full abstract»

    For years engineering has been predominantly a masculine profession, and for the first 46 years of its existence, General Motors Institute remained an all male educational institution. In 1965 the first female co-op student entered GMI, and since then, the co-ed population has increased rapidly. My paper outlines the co-op program, with emphasis on the female students and their feelings and experi... View full abstract»

    Special programs which lead high school girls to the college registration lines for freshmen engineering students are very new to most universities. Women enrollments of up to 10% of the engineering student body is equally a new experience. The College of Engineering at the University of North Dakota has conducted summer programs for high school girls for the last four years. The effort to attract... View full abstract»

    Activities by universities to attract more women and enrollments of women in engineering schools have both increased dramatically in the last two years. Survey responses from 70 institutions show that less than half have a staff member with specific responsibility to work toward increasing the enrollment of women. However, most institutions indicated that they were making efforts to attract more w... View full abstract»

    Women have been in engineering at Stanford since 1928. Ever increasing numbers of females are now entering the undergraduate programs. Females comprise 18% of the freshman engineers. Much smaller percentages are evident on the graduate level. Stanford's course of action in attracting females into engineering on both levels is outlined. View full abstract»

    The recruitment of women for appointment to engineering faculties is best described as a search for members of a class of professionals which are in extremely short supply. After discussing the current, low representation of women on engineering faculties (and in the profession), projections are made for the future and suggestions are presented to increase the number of women beyond that projected...
