According to a 2013 report from the National Science Foundation, Hispanic men and womrn comprised 6% of the science and engineering workforce in 2010; at that time, Hispanics comprised 16% of the U.S. population.

At the university level, the rate of science and engineering bachelor’s and master’s degrees earned by underrepresentative minorities (blacks, Hispanics, American Indians) rose since 1991. They earned about 18% of all bachelor’s degrees and 13% of all master’s degrees.

More details can be found in the report.
