Women Engineers in the News

August 7, 2009

According to a study by Purdue University, women and men drop out of engineering at the same rate. Of course, that’s exactly what I said in my last post. I guess the word is starting to go around.

However, in my experience, I have noticed that more women than men have gotten academic alerts. Most of the people I know who have dropped out of engineering are women. I guess I can see how that myth would evolve – I suppose it’s only when you look at the overall numbers you realize that something else is going on.
