A Fast-Track Late-Entry Program for Women in Engineering.
Torge, Herman
The scarcity of women in engineering prompted the design of this program which moves eligible women into engineering with 12 months of intensive course work. Qualifications for entry included a college degree with emphasis in math or science, underemployed or employed in non-degree related work. Evaluation activities included program monitoring, score comparisons with regular students, staff interviews, and women self-concept measurements. Problems encountered were low self-concept, extreme competition, family and financial concerns, and student-staff conflicts. A longitudinal study is planned. (Author)
