Chemical Engineering Students: A Distinct Group among Engineers
Godwin, Allison; Potvin, Geoff
Chemical Engineering Education, v47 n3 p145-153 Sum 2013
This paper explores differences between chemical engineering students and students of other engineering disciplines, as identified by their intended college major. The data used in this analysis was taken from the nationally representative Sustainability and Gender in Engineering (SaGE) survey. Chemical engineering students differ significantly from other engineers in several dimensions including career interests and science identity. The results of this comparative analysis highlight key factors to consider when teaching this unique group of engineering students.
