Understanding the first year experience of engineering students
The aim of this project is to investigate the transition experience of students beginning an engineering degree. Of particular interest are the minority groups in engineering: women, mature age students, and at UNSW Canberra, civilian students in an otherwise military cohort. A better understanding of the difficulties encountered by different groups of students will enable more targeted and more effective social and academic support. This project requires a mixed methods approach, and strong skills in statistics or the ability to quickly develop those skills.
