Each year in our university, one student from each of the six faculties is named the Outstanding Student of the faculty, and one of the six is named the Most Outstanding Student of the university. For 2007, all but one of the six are females, including the Most Outstanding Student. That includes even traditionally male-dominated faculties such as engineering, and construction & land use. The lone male is in communication. In fact, this has been the pattern in recent years. In one year, all six of them were females.
What does that tell us about the gender bias? Does that mean females are smarter? They work harder? Professors are biased towards them?
On the other hand, in many faculties and departments, male professors still outnumber female professors by a large margin.
