January 1970

While this was once a very male dominated employer, in the past 15 years things have changed dramatically.

Graduate Research Assistant

Industrial and Systems Engineering

January 1970

I completed a two-year Master's degree with a research assistantship throughout. There are quite a few women in administrative roles and as students. There are also several women in faculty, but women are disproportionately adjunct faculty rather than tenure-track. It seemed like students were treated fairly, but that it would be tough to pursue a PhD or a tenure position in the department.

    Maybe. A lot of women as graduate students, but few women faculty members and many of them are adjuncts.

You may be fine if you are politically astute and a mother.
