    During the last decade, the gap between women and men graduate students in engineering has been closing, although significant differences remain in the research environment. Some of the graduate student perceptions are explored and contrasted with performance indicators of M.I.T. Electrical Engineering and Computer Science graduate students. A major conclusion emerging from the analysis is that th... View full abstract»

    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 ... View full abstract»

    This paper raises questions related to the lagging participation of women in the engineering profession from the point of view of an engineering educator, a foreign-born engineer, a wife, and a mother. An attempt is made to pinpoint factors which appear to hinder the entry of women into engineering and especially prevent them from considering the academic option. Views from a different cultural an... View full abstract»
