2004 Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Graduate Numbers

The data is tabalized at the end of the pdf. But, I've attached the image to this post. The pdf can be found on the ACS COMMITTEE ON PROFESSIONAL TRAINING website: http://www.chemistry.org/portal/a/c/s/1/acsdisplay.html?DOC=education%5ccpt%5cannrepCPT.html
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

the number of chemical engineering departments are only a quarter of that of the chemistry departments.

However, the number of chemical engineering (bachelor) graduates is almost 50% of that of the chemistry graduates. ie. there are half as many chemical engineering students graduate each year.

the same holds true for PhD too. Wow..

Twice as many chemists graduate each year, but it also suggest that each chemical engineering department takes in more student than a chemistry department. It makes me wonder if chemical engineering departments are increasingly less selective over the years.

Dilution is irrelevant if you go to a top school.

Imagine you are from a top school, but your department produces so many graduates each year that you have so many people from a top school, to compete with, for the same job.
