Comment on Higher drop out rates in Engineering by kaylynnrhill

Thank you for your insight into the implications of different programs in the retention of students in engineering. I am glad that you had the opportunity to take part in different internships and experiences that allowed you to figure out which engineering was the best fit for your interests and the impact that you want to make through your career. Currently, I am working with researchers in engineering education on different pathways that transfer engineering students take to get to four year institutions. Then we also look at the different motivating factors for students to persist throughout their degree. Thank you for listing some of the potentional reasons that a student may not persist throughout their engineering career. I hope that advisors and program directors would take these considerations into account when they are building their programs.
