Ontario Engineering Undergraduate Enrollment by Gender

In 2015, a total of 10,692 female undergraduates were studying engineering in accredited programs across Ontario. This represents 37% percent growth in the absolute number of female undergraduate enrollments compared to 2009, and marks a third consecutive year of growth in the number of young women enrolled across the province. At the same time, the number of male students has increased and the proportion of engineering undergraduates who are female has remained at 20% for the last two years.
