Recent data has shown that efforts are succeeding, with the number of women receiving graduate engineering degrees increasing by about 2,300 from 2000–2008, rising to 22.5% from 20.5%.

When it comes to engineering schools, or even just schools in general, there is a large effort exerted to pull a diversity of people. As for engineering, the industry knows that its pull needs to be stronger when it comes to women. When you have the power of gender diversity on a team of engineers, it brings much more creativity and innovation to the team.
