This paper describes the efforts and results of a plan for actively recruiting students
to undergraduate computer science and engineering programs at the University of
North Texas (UNT). It also describes a series of activities aimed at improving
retention rates of students already in our programs. Such recruitment and retention
of students is critical to the country's efforts to increase the number of engineering
professionals, and is a priority for the Computer Science and Engineering (CSE)
Department at UNT.
INTRODUCTION
Computer science and engineering communities have been exploring efforts to attract
more students, especially women and minorities, to computer science and engineering
degree programs and to retain them once they are there [1]. This paper describes the
efforts and results of a plan for actively recruiting students to undergraduate computer
engineering programs at the University of North Texas (UNT). It also describes a series
