Women in Microwaves: A Closer Look (.PDF Download)

Dec. 7, 2016

A small percentage of female university students elect to focus on engineering while even fewer opt to actually work in the engineering field. Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs are looking to bring more students—and girls in particular—into the sciences. As noted in the paper, “Persistence is Cultural: Professional Socialization and the Reproduction of Sex Segregation,” about 20% of undergraduate engineering degrees are awarded to women overall. But only 13% of the engineering workforce is female. In the highly specialized microwave engineering field, that percentage is, of course, even smaller...
