DATABYTES - Compiled by Brian L. Yoder

The top four disciplines in which American undergraduate students received engineering degrees in both 2005 and 2010 were mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, and computer science/engineering. In both years, the percentage of students receiving master’s degrees and doctorates was more equally distributed across disciplines than that of students receiving bachelor’s degrees. Students received the most doctorates in chemical engineering (ranked Number 1) in 2005 and 2010, and biomedical engineering (ranked a close Number 2) in 2010.
