Abstract

This report, the fourth in a series of six prepared as part of the Critical Path Analysis project, collects primary data on the supply of undergraduate scientists and engineers. It examines a range of issues specific to the state’s universities and colleges and assesses their impact on the production of baccalaureate degrees in science and engineering. These issues include application and enrollment trends in science and engineering programs; rates of retention/graduation of science and engineering students; and impediments to student success and progress to receiving a degree.
