North Carolina Agricultural and Technical (A&T) State University is still the top producer of Black engineers, according to the latest “Top 100 Producers of Minority Degrees” ranking from Diverse: Issues in Higher Education.

Each year, Diverse compiles the list of the Top 100 institutions that confer the most degrees to minority students by conducting an analysis of U.S. Department of Education reports submitted by institutions.

“It is very validating to see this report. The credit for this result goes to our faculty, staff, students, and alumni – and I am very proud of them for the quality they consistently achieve for the benefit of our university and our nation,” said Dr. Robin Coger, dean of the College of Engineering.

The report found that A&T is also the No. 2 producer of African American engineers at the master’s level; and the No. 4 producer of African American engineers at the doctoral level.

In addition to engineering, A&T has also been ranked in a number of categories including:

On the undergraduate level:

No. 2 in degrees awarded to African Americans in engineering technologies and engineering-related fields

At the graduate level, A&T has also been ranked:

No. 1 producer of master’s degrees awarded to African Americans in mathematics and statistics
No. 2 producer of master’s degrees awarded to African Americans in physical sciences
No. 5 producer of master’s degrees awarded to African Americans in engineering technologies and engineering-related fields

A&T has also ranked in the top 20 for:

Undergraduate degrees awarded to the total minority in engineering technologies and engineering-related fields; and agriculture, agriculture operations, and related sciences

Master’s degrees awarded to total minority students in engineering technologies and engineering-related fields

“North Carolina A&T’s leadership in educating and graduating so many African American students in STEM disciplines and a host of other fields not only plays a transformative role in those graduates’ lives but contributes significantly to the diversity of the fields in which they work,” said interim Provost Beryl McEwen.

These rankings come on the heels of the announcement of the university’s enrollment growth across racial and ethnic groups, the report said.

For several years now, Diverse: Issues In Higher Education has produced the Top 100 Degree Producers rankings of the institutions that confer the most degrees to minority students. Diverse analyses U.S. Department of Education reports submitted by institutions.

The African Diaspora Development Institute (ADDI) is looking for AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERS for immediate inclusion on massive infrastructure projects FOR DIASPORA, BY DIASPORA all across the African continent beginning in Ghana with the Wakanda City of Return in Gold Coast, a new age tech City (per the president of Ghana). Contact us immediately at +1 310 686 8100 or gailmarie.scott@myshroom.com. Incidentally, the project is calling all engineers. We are using Trello to organize our groups of professionals while we await the introduction of our very own software (being created as we speak). The entire continent is being DECOLONIZED to ensure that the CHILDREN OF THE MOTHERLAND take their rightful place on the world stage (as African DIASPORA are the only group without an identified homeland). http://www.ourADDI.org and http://www.Africa101.org. PLEASE CONTACT ASAP. Thank you!!
