Diversity of NWRC Researchers
The NWRC appoints graduates of universities as well as post-graduates with higher academic degrees (diploma, master, and philosophy of science). The distribution of employees is nearly even among the three categories (B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D.) as shown in the chart (Figure 2). Thirty nine percent of the employees at the NWRC hold B.Sc. degree; 29 percent of them hold M.Sc. degree, while 32 percent holds Ph.D.
Figure (3) illustrates diversity of the NWRC employees in terms of scientific specializations. Engineering specialty dominates the rest of specializations by occupying 56% of the NWRC employees. Scientific Sciences specialty comes second by occupying 20% of the NWRC employees.
The remaining specializations such as agronomy, socio-economics, and environmental science occupy very minor percentages (3%, 3%, and 1%, respectively) of the NWRC employees. It is also important to mention that gender is very well represented at the National Water Research Center since ratio of male/female is about (2:1) as illustrated in Figure (3).
