*4th year students include all students with more than 90 credit hours except post baccalaureate (PB)

**Number of master’s students enrolled and graduated are for all engineering and computer science disciplines because both masters programs are interdisciplinary, making it impossible to determine accurate program numbers.  The number enrolled in electrical engineering averages about 8 with 3 graduates per year.
