Several federal agencies asked the National Research Council to document the participation of women engineers in academic institutions within the United States by creating a directory that can be used to announce programs and other formal communications. In response, the NRC compiled a list of approximately 1, 300 women faculty in engineering departments in the United States and conducted a survey to gather additional information about their status and careers. This resulting databook provides information on the race/ethnicity, degrees held, employment history, primary work activities, and tenure status of the nearly 800 women faculty members who completed the survey. In addition, it summarizes their responses to questions about experiences with mentoring, factors contributing to career decisions, and satisfaction with current employment.TABLE 3-11 Career Impact of Aspects of the Work Environment and Life Cycle Events on Female Engineering Faculty at ... 91 12 77 10 Number of Women on Engineering Faculty 775 140 18 257 33 308 40 70 9 Opportunity for Administrativeanbsp;...
