African American Civil Engineers Are On The Rise

There are 5 comments on the www.diversitycareers.com story from Apr 18, 2010, titled African American Civil Engineers Are On The Rise. In it, www.diversitycareers.com reports that:

We’re seeing an increase in interest and enrollment in civil engineering,” says James H. Johnson, Jr, PhD, dean emeritus of the college of engineering, architecture and computer sciences at Howard University (Washington, DC). “We expect the incoming freshman class to be 10 to 15 percent larger than in the past.”

Johnson notes that civil engineering has not been a popular career choice for African Americans. He attributes the sudden interest to the new administration’s recent emphasis on infrastructure and the environment. And he expects Howard’s experience to be repeated elsewhere.
