The Small Shall Rise

Three of the smallest engineering disciplines have increased substantially at the undergraduate level over the past decade. Recent enrollment trends indicate that the growth in these energy-related fields has not yet peaked. Nuclear and petroleum enrollment increased by 24 percent over the past two years, while mining is up by 16 percent. Master’s degree growth has also been substantial for both mining (up 50 percent) and nuclear (up 87 percent) since 2002, while the number of petroleum engineering master’s degrees has changed little over the past six years.
