m Cheniical Engineering Programs In this chapter 79 research-doctorate programs in chemical engi- neering are assessed. These programs, according to the information supplied by their universities, have accounted for 1,405 doctoral degrees awarded during the FY1976-80 period--approximately 97 percent of the aggregate number of chemical engineering doctorates earned from U.S. universities in this five-year span.) On the average, 24 full- time and part-time students intending to earn doctorates were enrolled in a program in December 1980, with an average faculty size of 12 mem- bers.2 Only three of the programs were initiated since 1970, and no two programs are located in the same university. In addition to the 79 institutions represented in this discipline, one other--Colorado School of Mines--was initially identified as meeting the criteria3 for inclusion in the assessment. However, this institution~chose not to participate in the assessment in and discipline. Before examining individual program results presented in Table 3.1, the reader is urged to refer to Chapter II, in which each of the 16 measures used in the assessment is discussed. Summary statistics describing every measure are given in Table 3.2. For 10 of the mea- sures, data are reported for at least 69 of the 79 chemical engineering programs. For measures 04-07, which pertain to characteristics of the program graduates, data are presented for only approximately three- fourths of the programs; the other fourth had too few graduates on which to base statistics.4 For measure 12, a composite index of the Data from the NRC's Survey of Earned Doctorates indicate that 1,453 research doctorates in chemical engineering were awarded by U.S. uni- versities between FY1976 and FY1980. 2 See the reported means for measures 03 and 01 in Table 3.2. 3As mentioned in Chapter I, the primary criterion for inclusion was that a university had awarded 5 or more doctorates in chemical engi- neering during the FY1976-78 period. 4 As mentioned in Chapter II, data for measures 04-07 are not reported if they are based on the survey responses of fewer than 10 FY197S-79 program graduates. 33

34 size of a university library, data are available for 52 programs. The programs not evaluated on this measure are typically smaller--in terms of faculty size and graduate student enrollment--than other chemical engineering programs. With respect to measure 13, the fraction of faculty with research support from the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health r and the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration, data are reported for 55 programs that had at least 10 faculty members. Were data on measure 12 and 13 avail able for all 79 programs, it is likely that the reported means would be appreciably lower {and that some of the correlations of these mea- sures with others would be higher). Intercorrelations among the 16 measures {Pearson product-moment coefficients) are given in Table 3.3. Of particular note are the high positive correlations of the measures of the numbers of recent gradu- ates (02) and numbers of students (03) with the measures of publication records (15, 16) and reputational survey ratings (08, 091. Figure 3.1 illustrates the relation between the mean rating of the scholarly qual- ity of faculty (measure 08) and the number of faculty members (measure 01) for each of 79 programs in chemical engineering. Figure 3.2 plots the mean rating of program effectiveness (measure 09) against the total number of FY1976-80 program graduates {measure 021. Although in both figures there is a significant positive correlation between program size and reputational rating, it is quite apparent that some of the smaller programs received high mean ratings and that some of the larger programs received low mean ratings. Table 3.4 describes the 164 faculty members who participated in the evaluation of chemical engineering programs. These individuals consti- tuted 69 percent of those asked to respond to the survey in this disci- pline and 17 percent of the faculty population in the 79 research- doctorate programs being evaluated.s More than one-third of the survey participants had earned their highest degree since 1970, and a majority held the rank of full professor. To assist the reader in interpreting results of the survey evalua- tions, estimated standard errors have been computed for mean ratings of the scholarly quality of faculty in 79 chemical engineering programs (and are given in Table 3.1~. For each program the mean rating and an associated "confidence interval" of 1.5 standard errors are illustrated in Figure 3.3 (listed in order of highest to lowest mean rating). In comparing two programs, if their confidence intervals do not overlap, one may conclude that there is a significant difference in their mean ratings at a .05 level of significance.6 From this figure it is also apparent that one should have somewhat more confidence in the accuracy 5 See Table 2.3 in Chapter II. 6 See pp. 29-31 for a discussion of the interpretation of mean ratings and associated confidence intervals.

35 of the mean ratings of higher-rated programs than lower-rated programs This generalization results primarily from the fact that evaluators are not as likely to be familiar with the less prestigious-programs, and consequently the mean ratings of these programs are usually based on fewer survey responses. .
