Abstract

The published literature regarding students who depart engineering has generally not examined those who stay in the “T” part of STEM by pursuing engineering technology (ET). Internal data from the authors’ department suggest that students who transfer into ET from engineering fields often succeed in the more hands-on setting, but bring with them far lower early-semester GPAs. Internal data also show that these transfers may have lower engagement with the discipline and less interaction with faculty and student organizations.
