Results of Fall 1976 Survey of Engineering Freshmen.
Ott, Mary Diederich
The fall 1976 survey of engineering freshmen is the third of a series of five surveys seeking to determine the characteristics and attitudes of male and female engineering students, and the changes in these areas as students proceed through their first two years in engineering programs. Fourteen schools participated in the 1976 survey. An 80-item questionnaire was completed by 1,861 respondents (852 women and 1,009 men). Results were analyzed for response patterns by men and women and for differences between the two groups. Areas included in the study were: engineering major field, parental influence, reasons for career choice, reasons for graduate study, occupational goals, preferred professional work situation, source of job satisfaction, parents' background, subjects enjoyed in high school, school background, leisure time patterns, college performance, and future job preferences. Many differences are identified. (RH)
