Cui, Suxia; Wang, Younhui; Yang, Yonggao; Nave, Felecia M.; Harris, Kendall T. – American Journal of Engineering Education, 2011
Engineering programs suffer a high attrition rate, which causes the nation to graduate much less engineers. A survey of the literature reveals that the high attrition rate is due mainly to the fact that the first year of an engineering program is all fundamental theory and students don't see the connection to their future engineering careers. To…
