When McCauley gave birth to a daughter at 15, she was told by a public assistance/welfare counselor that she was fated to be “just another statistic.” But by age 29 she had earned her Ph.D. in engineering – the first African-American woman to do so in the state of Oklahoma. Having taught aeronautics and astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of technology, she is now a tenured professor and biomechanics and ergonomics expert at the University of Central Florida. According to the National Science Foundation, of the 9,489 doctorates awarded in engineering in 2013, only 0.7% went to African-American women – leading McCauley to joke that she did become a statistic after all.
