FACULTY FACTS

The total number of engineering teaching personnel comes to 25,419 with 307 universities reporting data to ASEE. The overwhelming majority of them are still white males, with Asian males a distant second. Women comprised 10.4 percent of engineering faculty in 2004. Those and many more numbers will be available in June when ASEE’s new 2005 “Profiles of Engineering and Engineering Technology Colleges” comes out. You can also visit www.asee.org/colleges for a more detailed view of each school’s 2005 data.
