Abstract

The current situation of women students in engineering, identifying barriers and obstacles to their persistence in engineering majors was reviewed. The efforts of MentorNet to support women engineering, science, math, and technolgoy students during the crucial first year of undergraduated education were also discussed. It was suggested that engineering has remained a field where women continue to be severely underrepresented. Engineering is the career aspiration that still shows the greatest difference between the number of men and women as they begin their undergraduates years.
