In a recent study by the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) on minority attrition and completion in STEM doctoral degrees, it was suggested that “successful advisor-advisee relationships” is critical to successful outcomes. The study titled “Doctoral imitative on minority attrition and completion (DIMAC)”, however, did not define the specific attributes of a successful advisor-advisee relationship. In this paper, the results of a survey study on the role of mentoring attributes on the completion of Ph.D. degree by Underrepresented Minority (URM) students in engineering in a historically black college and university (HBCU) is presented. It was found that the median doctoral time-to-degree (TTD) of the URM students in engineering at the HBCU was several months shorter than that of URM students at Predominantly White Institutions (PWI) of higher education.
