DATABYTES - Compiled by Brian L. Yoder

This month’s Databytes draws inspiration from a recent debate on whether engineering schools are producing enough graduates for current job openings. We asked the question: Will engineering disciplines with higher median pay and greater predicted job growth show greater undergraduate enrollment growth than disciplines with lower median pay and lower predicted job growth? To answer this question, we looked at part-time and full-time engineering undergraduate students enrolled in 2006 and 2011 for selected engineering disciplines, and matched them with Department of Labor statistics on predicted job growth and median pay for engineering disciplines from 2010 to 2020.
