RAPID CITY, SD -

Recruiting efforts and financial aid are helping to draw more South Dakota women students into studying mechanical engineering.

Forty-one women are enrolled in the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology mechanical engineering program this month. Five years ago, there were 23 women in the program.

The school has advertising aimed at women, and female students can get scholarships worth up to $5,000 a year.

Recruiting official Lisa Carlson says the school is starting a mentoring program to match new female mechanical engineering students with women who are further along in school.

Lyndsey Penfield says she wants to be a mentor to new women students. She says she got into the field because of her interest in airplanes, and she's graduating next year.
