Electrical/computer engineering was once the largest discipline across all degree levels. That has changed drastically for bachelor’s degree programs, where mechanical engineering students now outnumber their ECE counterparts by a ratio of 1.2 to 1. ECE was the larger discipline as recently as 2005. ECE is still about twice as large as ME at the graduate level. Although both disciplines have seen virtually the same growth in absolute numbers of graduate students since 2005, the rate of ME growth is more than double that for ECE.

All totals are for full time plus part time.
