My daughter just found out a few days ago that she is a Camras Scholarship recipient. She really enjoyed her visit to the campus earlier this month and right now it is her top choice. One thing my husband noticed is a high percentage of female engineering students enrolled. Does anyone have the specific statistics on this? My d will be studying ME. Thank you.
The female enrollment at Illinois Tech is approximately 31% This is pretty typical for all majors except perhaps for Computer Science. The Camras program has done a lot to increase the number of women in the undergraduate student body. I think ME is pretty much right at the average.
Sorry about the delay in responding. I have been at conferences over the past few weeks.
Our current overall female enrollment for undergraduate students is 35%, which is the ratio that you will find within the mechanical engineering department.
Let us know if you have any other questions!
