Since PIal 1997, the IEEE student chapter
., has been very active and has n a considerable
Sincrcase in memrnbership. We currenLly have ab"ut
250 mrnmbers. making US one of the largest cha]p-
ters i theL southeast. Our activities include twlh
Ia pprtllmititS for professional development and
social interaction.

We hold information sessions where
companies give presentations about thrm~iO .n
and issues related to the field of electrical eiagi-
mering. In January 1998. we held an Engineering
Conference in which we invit-'d f, I companPiies to
give presentatios: IBM, Raythetwi, TI Systern%.
Anderson Consulting, EXXON, and Fntergy. Over
121 ECE students attended and wj we llt l t
network with the companies and ditriluite their
resumes. r suoceu this yea r has~xti due tto
donations made by rompatir such as IBM,
Motorola, Comcast, and En terg,; ThAnks to them,
we were able to ell IEE Student Chapter polo
shirts, and provide fL id at the compmrLy inbuTra-
tioin sessions.

The TFFE -tudent chapter also sponsored
social events thip ye..r, hidingg our first armual
ba-,kvtlldl tuirumnlt. Our corporate sponsors
prOvided T-s~irt, for the tournament. The win-
tning teamn out ,f the eight participating war taken
to dinner it Outback 5icakhUIC .

In thi next few years, we hope to increase
the chapter activities. We would like t attend the
S9,ithlras Regional Conference in Kentucky
DLring this ftnir day event. student chupler
compete uith each other ui various teas, sudi as
hardware and web designs. We would also Ilke t~
start a scholarship hund tor zWember that would
be based not only on sclhlars ip but in active
participation in IF FE Student Chapter activtlies,
C(mtinuing support lroLm both company isand
alumni will make tdes endeavtw possible.

According to a 1996 Survey of
Graduate Students and
Pasrdoctrales in Science and
Engineering fmm 603 institu-
tions of higher education, total
enrollment has been declining
since 1992 but the number of
woren continues to climb. The
National Action Council for
Minorities in Engineering
reported a 4% gain in 1996 far
female engineering graduates
while the total increase for
engineering graduates was only
1%. Even though numbers have
improved, there is still disparity
between the sexes as women
experience disproportionate
attrition rates. A 1995 saudy
cited in "The Jounal of Colege
Student Development" suggests
inadequate counseling and
advising as reasons that women
are less likely to stay with
engineering. The women that
do stay may not pursue a career
in science and engineering
because an undergraduate
enginclering education is broadly
applicable in a number of
outside fields. In a 1993 science
and engineering survey, women
received 45% of the BA/ BS
degrees, 36% of the Graduate
degmrs, 30% of Ph-D.'s but only
made up 22% of the science and
engineering labor force.

SAI.ARIES
Salary inequities are still persistent
in academe and industry with far
fewer women than men attaining
the rank of full professor or secur
ing management positions and in
both cases averaging lower salaries.
In 1995, women made up 23% of
doctoral science and engineering
employees in universities and four-
year colleges but only 14% of
assistant professors and 2% of full
professorn. The dispmportionately
low number of women in high
ranks causes the median annual
salary of women in aecence and
engineering to be $15,000 lower
than for men. The gap is smaller
for electrical and related engineers,
averaging $72DOO for males and
S64,000 fr females. The American
Council an Education's Offe of
Women in Higher Education, along
with college and university presi-
dents who serve on its Commiskion
on Women, have tried to determine
why salary inequities continue-
Reasons found include the idea that
women don't need to work because
they have husbands to support
them, and the belief that women are
not as competent as men. Law suits
such as the ones at American
University, the University of
Hawaii, and Boise State University
have forced institutions to pay
hundreds of thousands of dollars in
back pay to compensate women
who were being paid less than their
male counterparts. The outlook is
improving as an NS National
Survey of Recent College Graduates
in 1993 found "Engineer" was the
only broad science and engineering
occupation that averaged higher
salaries for women than men for
both bachelor's and master's full-
time employed graduates.

These discrepancies between the
sexes suggest that the college
experience is quite dififrent for
women than men in I Ih.tric;: and
Computer Fngiinerinng. R, Kiilh.Il
believes that the
gender gap has
enhanced her ECE
education. "I have a
minority feIlowship

ECE Assoiate
Prnfeslar, speculates.
"I am still trying to
figure out if the
thinr-,s that have
.dferLed my career are gender
based. I think that the gender gap
ha both positive and nrt.Lative
effeLt 1:1 na woman's career."

Several of the women report
s.iiingi some type of passive
d iskminlnatirn from their niters or
TA's. Vi~s rrgiL- nilin:. that "Some
males think that they know

Loftus, who mecnrioill somen
sliighlv discriminating I'A's,
writes "the pmFrT ;ior; I have had


are all mature professionals who
have no problem ,with female
students." The students are a
bright part ot Lr. Li's career.
"''SLdents here in general are good

ing that some female student feel
there are a lack of role models.
However, Dr. li believe that
female eng'inees don't need
female role models: "Meln can be
good role models, too." Luna

Sutton wriltc'. "Mi role models

cceriiwng and will no et ltan)one or
anything 4op them from reaching

Unce out of school, women nmy
still face barriers. Of the ECF
underfi.rd late students who
received job offers, the men's
salary offers rangLd from bh,ti)O
to ,41 ,.l(? and women's unl]
3J4.UI)11 to S3H.MXXI. Even wilh lli0s
discrepadinv the accv'pit4d job

special attention to female faculty
appLicadzis but all pa) raises and
priomnlins are solely ncrit-ba.msd.
L(-E students tend to prefer the
exclusion of gender as a hindrance
or an asset, WVhen asked about the
"gla ceiling'" Lof tus rL'sponLL.!,
"l'eople should be considered
based on their grades and their
>klJls. gender should not be an
issue." Sutton agrktt',, "empoyt'rs
are now looking for someone who
will do Illc right Ib and not
someone who Lis a certain sex."
Old barmirs are sIill evident but

reports average tdearning.r of femAle
Lcngi nIrTL'- under age 30 to be
about S2,OILH a year higher tharn
those of their male c'lleagues.

According to Kahiln, who receives
graduate applicatlius, "the only
problr'rt with female applicants is


that lIhere aren't e'noLugh of Ilemn."
Wheli asked if Ilhv would choose
ECF. again, 4"i: of the Under-
raduate females said "yes," only
5% would not, and 11'.. were
unsure. Redfield writc.. "my lifi.
is a lot more fun than it would
ever bt without Lrningcring.." All
of the students who responded to
the survey, said thrv would
recommend an ECF degree to
Lither wirmen, but V.'AT.L cau1ti.in,
"not to just any woman." Luna
agrees, "it's not a field for the
unsu ." Loftus deiL.ribes the
wonme in engLin'r'rinr g as "spei.al
- we haveme mre rvt'snsibililier
to work hard and prove we are as
good or betteT than the others."
Dr.Li suggests Ilut to improve
female n,'pri~ ntaltiIo in enginte'r-
ing, "girlz, should Ihl' encmuragrd
to excel in math and science at a
younAi.yig.' In reference to her
experiences at UF, T oftis, writes,
"it has been primarily positive in

"Sadly, an engineering LdL'r*',r'
does not prepare one at all to start
or run a company," states Patrick
After graduating frnom the Univer-
sity of Florida and starting to
work, Patrick attended night
school at Clemnson Li Uni Uhit'l
where he obtained an MBA.

Regardless of market demand for
a product, "a bunch of engineers
alone can not start and run a
company." If a group of young
engineers decided to start a
company, a person with business.
and hopefully legal experience is a
"must" according to Patrick. "I
would recommend that thrL' fir.t,
find a person to fi11 that role, then,
draft a business plan, halving the
projected Revenue and doubling
the projected Expenses in the first
year, and then have as many
people review and critique the
plan as they can." If, after all
these steps, the plan looks viable
and you have idnLtfiid the initial
capital sources, then proceed.

trick counts three benefits to
running a small
company. First,
knowing prtkisely
what the financial
situation of the
company Ls. [n theirr
