Obama, ASEE and the Council on Jobs and Competitiveness Partnership to Increase Number of Engineering Graduates

 With a strong endorsement from President Obama, ASEE and the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness have launched a partnership to measure, evaluate, and celebrate excellence in retention, graduation, and diversity in engineering education. The effort is intended to further the council’s goal of seeing at least a 10 percent increase in engineering graduates over the next decade. A Seal of Excellence will reward engineering colleges that produce more graduates and provide an incentive to others.
