Prospective job satisfaction: Female ENGR Students
Here is a brief description of their planned research:
Inspired by recent research on differential attrition of engineering graduates by gender (Fouad & Singh, 2011) this project will survey female and male undergraduate engineering from public universities in Arkansas. The main variable to be assessed will be prospective job satisfaction. Other variables will include GPA and the "Big Five" personality factors: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism along with GPA and math proficiency. We will create a questionnaire and administer it face-to-face to groups at the various colleges offering undergraduate engineering programs.
