Abstract

The importance of attracting students to STEM disciplines such as engineering is well understood. Many developed countries are trying to grow numbers in the field by attracting a greater proportion of females than currently exists. This study explores student engineering selection decisions and initial concerns by gender prior to official commencement of classes within common first year engineering.
