DATABYTES: High Achievers - COMPILED BY MICHAEL GIBBONS - Data source: American Society for Engineering Education - INFOGRAPHIC ILLUSTRATION BY I-SHAN CHEN  


Increasingly more Engineering PhDs are going to international students. The percentage of engineering doctorates awarded to foreign nationals has risen steadily since 1999. Master’s degrees followed a similar track until reaching a peak in 2003. Permanent U.S. residents now receive over 60 percent of engineering master’s degrees. The data indicate that these trends should continue for at least the near term.
