Certificates and Degrees in Science and Engineering

Description: 

This indicator was constructed by tallying bachelor’s degrees, associate’s degrees, and college certificates awarded in specific fields:

  • Computer and Information Sciences and Support
  • Engineering
  • Engineering Technologies/Technicians
  • Biological and Biomedical Sciences
  • Mathematics and Statistics
  • Physical Sciences
  • Science Technologies/Technicians

The number of science and engineering degrees earned at Arizona institutions in each year from 2001 through 2008 is presented by county and for the state total on the dashboard. Most counties do not have an institution granting bachelor’s degrees and thus have a value of zero. The total number of degrees granted also is presented, and the science and engineering share of the total is calculated.

Data Quality Comments: 

The information is self-reported by the institutions. Only Coconino, Maricopa, Pima, and Yavapai Counties have instutions which give bachelor's degrees. The total does not include degrees from institutions that provide no training in specialized science and engineering programs. The information is self-reported by the institutions.

Note: Gila, Greenlee, La Paz, and Santa Cruz counties do not have an institution of higher learning.
