Not a “Real” Engineer:
The Construction of an Engineering Education Study
by Jessica Deters
Graduates who do not pursue engineering careers are typically framed as “non-persisters,” and it is assumed that some factor within the university or student failed. In this presentation, I question this “failure” assumption within engineering education. By better understanding how senior engineering students seeking non-engineering careers experience their undergraduate degree, we can better design engineering programs, curricula, and resources for the full population of engineering students.
Jessica Deters holds a B.S. in Applied Mathematics & Statistics and an Honors Minor in Public Affairs from the Colorado School of Mines. She is currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Engineering Education at Virginia Tech.
