singular&plural; preposition "into"


May I ask you to help me again, please.
I have two questions now.

The first one: "Ten per cent of engineering students were male." Why "male" is in singular form? I suppose - many students - many males...?

The other one: "50 per cent of science graduates went into the teaching profession". Why the preposition is "into", could it be "in" or "to"?
Thank you for your help!
