Tendhar, Chosang; Paretti, Marie C.; Jones, Brett D. – American Journal of Engineering Education, 2017
This study had three purposes and four hypotheses were tested. Three purposes: (1) To use hierarchical linear modeling (HLM) to investigate whether students' perceptions of their engineering career intentions changed over time; (2) To use HLM to test the effects of gender, engineering identification (the degree to which an individual values a…

Yurtseven, M. Kudret; Buchanan, Walter W. – American Journal of Engineering Education, 2016
Decision making in most universities is taught within the conventional OR/MS (Operations Research/Management Science) paradigm. This paradigm is known to be "hard" since it is consisted of mathematical tools, and normally suitable for solving structured problems. In complex situations the conventional OR/MS paradigm proves to be…

Ernst, Jeremy V.; Bowen, Bradley D.; Williams, Thomas O. – American Journal of Engineering Education, 2016
Students identified as at-risk of non-academic continuation have a propensity toward lower academic self-efficacy than their peers (Lent, 2005). Within engineering, self-efficacy and confidence are major markers of university continuation and success (Lourens, 2014 Raelin, et al., 2014). This study explored academic learning self-efficacy specific…

Ernst, Jeremy V.; Bowen, Bradley – American Journal of Engineering Education, 2014
This study explored how freshman engineering students utilized career awareness developmental opportunities prior to entry into post-secondary academics. Specifically, the study delved into separations and distinctions among students at-risk of non-continuation due to matriculation concerns and students non at-risk. Founded on the amended…
