Women Enrollments in Engineering on the Rise at the University of Minnesota

The College of Science and Engineering at the University of Minnesota reports that women enrollments are up 4 percent from a year ago and at the highest level in the past decade. There are currently 1,666 women enrolled in the college. Women now make up 21 percent of the total enrollments in the College of Science and Engineering.

The university has made a major effort to recruit women to engineering programs. Students and faculty make regular visiting to local schools to build Lego houses and conduct experiments with Silly Putty to get young girls interested in science. Each summer, engineering-focused camps are held on the University of Minnesota campus for girls from kindergarten through high school age.
