Since the program's first graduates crossed the stage in August of 2009, 245 students have graduated with M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Automotive Engineering.
As of October 2014, over 95 percent of the department's alumni are using their degrees in industry or academia. Of those employed graduates, 20 percent are located in South Carolina. This shows that graduates no longer have to leave the state to find well-paying, knowledge-based employment.
