DATABYTES - Compiled by Brian L. Yoder

The following charts compare degrees awarded to foreign national students in engineering disciplines in 2001 and 2011. Foreign students represent a higher proportion of overall master’s and doctoral degree recipients than of bachelor’s degrees. The change in percent of bachelor’s degrees awarded to foreign national students from 2001 to 2011 was less than those awarded advanced degrees. The largest percent increases were for master’s degrees in electrical engineering, chemical engineering, and computer engineering. The largest percent decreases were for doctoral degrees in architectural engineering and mining.
