Abstract

Reasons for the low numbers of women entering the engineering profession are explored. Suggestions are presented for strategies to increase the representation of women at all levels: precollege, undergraduate, graduate, and industry. Insights gained from a recent Cooper Union survey are discussed. Actions that can be taken at the precollege, community college, engineering baccalaureate, graduate, and industry levels are proposed.
