Effective communication between engineering design team members is essential. It depends on successful transfer (sending, receiving and processing) of information. This information may range from data and facts to creative ideas. Recent work by Felder and Silverman has shown that individuals differ from one another in how they prefer to receive and process(More)

This paper explores the career-related decision making of seniors enrolled in undergraduate engineering programs at two nationally recognized institutions. This strand of the Academic Pathways Study (APS) research revealed that many engineering students were undecided about their career plans, even late into their senior years and that many were deciding(More)
Students of lower socioeconomic status (SES) tend to be underrepresented in American higher education, particularly at four-year institutions and more selective universities. Education researchers have shown that in the four year period following high school, low SES students are less likely to persist to a bachelor's degree or have graduate degree(More)
The Academic Pathways Study (APS) of the NSF-funded Center for the Advancement of Engineering Education (CAEE) is a cross-university study that systematically examines how engineering students navigate their education, and how engineering skills and identity develop during their undergraduate careers. The APS has utilized a variety of methods including(More)
A knowledge of the differences between persisters and nonpersisters may aid in the design of engineering curricula as well as strategies for academic advising. In the preliminary stage of analysis, as reported in this paper, the differences between persisters and non-persisters in engineering are apparent in the freshmen and sophomore years. In general,(More)

and a Lecturer in the School of Engineering. Dr. Schar's area of research is " pivot thinking " which is the intersection of design thinking and the neuroscience of choice where he has several research projects underway. He has a 30 year career in industry as a Vice President with The Procter & Gamble Company and Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing(More)
Engineers of the future are expected to possess a range of competencies in addition to math and science skills. This paper turns to engineering students to explore what they think it takes to become a good engineer. Profiles are identified by means of a large-scale survey-based investigation of the perceptions of first year engineering students in the US(More)
