DATABYTES - Compiled by Brian L. Yoder

In August, 2011, the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness declared that the United States needed 10,000 more engineering graduates a year. The council is now defunct, but as of 2011, engineering schools were already on their way to meeting its goal. That year saw 82,903 engineers graduate, a jump of 9,523 – or 13 percent – over 2007, and a majority of schools surveyed by ASEE reported an increase. With recent enrollments up and retention strengthened, the trend should continue.
