ASEE ANNUALLY COLLECTS DATA ON THE NUMBER OF TENURED AND TENURE-TRACK FACULTY MEMBERS. OF THE 358 ABET-ACCREDITED ENGINEERING SCHOOLS, 315 REPORTED FACULTY DATA FOR FALL 2005.  THIS ACCOUNTS FOR WELL OVER 90 PERCENT OF ALL ENGINEERING FACULTY. HALF OF THE 23,012 TENURED OR TENURE-TRACK FACULTY MEMBERS WERE FULL PROFESSORS DURING THE 2005-06 ACADEMIC YEAR. THIS IS VIRTUALLY UNCHANGED SINCE THE 1995-96 ACADEMIC YEAR.
