Research on Careers in Engineering

The Student Research Foundation examined what high-school students had to say about becoming the Engineers of tomorrow, summarizing nationwide data across several Research Consortia. See this infographic for important information about which students were more, or less, likely to choose some form of Engineering as a possible career path.

The data show that interest in engineering declines through the high-school years, and that much work remains to be done to encourage all students to pursue promising careers in engineering. As is well known, Engineering is an in-demand and growing field, so the prospects will be bright if more students are encouraged, prepared, and included.
