1. Assessing Success: Female Engineers at the Cooper Union
Contact Name: Gerardo Cerro Organization:The Cooper Union

At the Cooper Union School of Engineering, female students account for about thirty-five percent of the student population. This figure has held constant for the past ten years. Rather than trailing male students, female engineers at Cooper show a remarkable success in various areas, as measured by positive perception of the school's curriculum and programs and academic results. This paper presents and analyzes the basic evidence of female success at Cooper for the past years. It also provides a context to understand and pursue success by female engineering students elsewhere. Rather than providing their own interpretation of the data, the authors asked the female students themselves to give their opinions by responding to a questionnaire. The results of this survey, conducted among female engineering students, are included and commented on.
