Abstract

It is our belief that the number of female engineers would increase if there were a technical university for women. Studies have shown that women at single-sex schools have more self-confidence, choose more masculine areas of study and pursue doctorate degrees in these areas more extensively than do women at coeducational schools. In this project, we developed a model for a first-rate women's technical university. This model includes the academics of the school, as well as construction of the campus.
