Hi- thanks for the question. The statistics on this vary a little bit
depending on the source. You should be able to get a pretty solid
estimate for the information provided.

Please let me know if you need any additional assistance with this
question by requesting clarification.

Good luck!

"In 2003, Chinese universities awarded 13,000 doctorates, including
some 9,000 in engineering and science."

"An estimated 700000 engineers graduate annually from China's schools"
"Various media reports had suggested earlier that the United States
was graduating 70,000 engineers a year, compared with India's 3,50,000
and China's 600,000"
"First, the Duke report simply claimed that China's true number of
science and engineering bachelor degrees was 351,000, rather than the
widely reported 600,000. Coupling this with an upward adjustment for
American graduates still left China producing 214,000 more such
degrees than the United States."
"By the year 2000: Chinese engineering graduates had increased 161
percent to 207,500"
"China and India, the new global tech powerhouses, are fueled by
900,000 engineering graduates of all types each year, more than triple
the number of U.S. grads."

Achievements of Degree and Graduate Education in China

" We have awarded since the implementation of the Regulations (2002)
43,000 Doctoral Degrees, 430,000 Master's Degrees, and about 4,600,000
Bachelor's Degrees."

About 10,800 Doctoral Degrees per year
108,000 Masters Degrees per year
1,150,000 Bachelor's Degrees per year
                         BS/BA Degrees  BS Engineering   % Degrees

     Asian Citizens getting          5,600        24,900       345%
"China's production of those with doctorates has increased rapidly. By
2003, China's homegrown science and engineering doctorates numbered
almost half of the U.S. total."
