Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

9 Scopus citations


It is common knowledge that minorities are under represented in the field of engineering. This fact is also evidenced in the representation of minorities in engineering programs, both at the Associate and the Baccalaureate levels. Generally, the few minorities who have from time to time enrolled in engineering programs have consistently proved that minorities are just as capable, and have just as much chance of completing their programs as do well represented groups. Different suggestions for improving the numbers of minorities in universities and colleges are presented.
