Foreign Students: The percentage of foreign graduates in engineering has risen steadily since 1999. However, the percentage of master's degrees awarded to foreign nationals dropped by 0.8 percent this past year. Bachelor's degrees awarded to foreign nationals have remained steady during this time.Research Dollars: The amount of externally funded research expenditures among the 190 schools who reported their data to ASEE totaled $5.52 billion last year. The $1.25 billion increase over the past four years can be partly explained by the fact that 15 more schools are reporting their data. Not surprisingly, the federal government accounted for most of the funding, 67 percent in 2004.  Illustration by I-Shan Chen - Compiled by Michael Gibbons
