For students, the number of women receiving engineering degrees remains flat at all degree levels. On the national level, women consistently receive just over 20 percent of bachelor’s degrees, 21 percent of master’s degrees, and slightly fewer than 18 percent of doctoral degrees. There has been little change in these percentages over the past five years. Similarly, the representation of most minorities remained the same at the various degree levels.*
The University of Iowa College of Engineering exceeds national averages with just over 30 percent of bachelor’s degrees and 25 percent of doctoral degrees awarded to women.
