The number of master’s-degree students enrolled in engineering management doubled between 2003 and 2006, despite a 9 percent overall decline in engineering master’s enrollment. Seventy-one percent of engineering management master’s students attend part time, a substantially greater share than the 40 percent of overall engineering master’s students attending part time. Women receive 22.2 percent of engineering management degrees at this level. On average, they receive roughly the same percentage of all engineering master’s degrees.
