High School Pre-Engineering Programs: Do They Contribute to College Retention?
Cole, Belinda; High, Karen; Weinland, Kathryn
American Journal of Engineering Education, v4 n1 p85-98 2013
The study examines the retention of students in the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology at Oklahoma State University that enter college with a defined course sequence in a pre-engineering program from a regional career technology center as compared with the retention rates of university engineering students for the same time period. In addition to descriptive data, results from one-sample ?[superscript 2] tests that compared the homogeneity of proportions in enrollment across semesters completed between the groups are presented. The results of this foundational study suggest similar rates of persistence in the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology among Oklahoma regional technology center pre-engineering program students entering college and those entering with more traditional high school academic preparation.
