The National Science Foundation reports that two thirds of all research doctorates awarded by U.S. academic institutions were in science and engineering in 2009. This represents a 29.1 percent increase since 1999. Non-science and engineering doctorates rose by 6.1 percent during this period. The NSF and ASEE databases both registered over 40 percent growth in engineering doctorates since 1999.
