Abstract or Summary
  • In a society where equality is sought as the norm, occupational gender representation is still skewed in some disciplines. One field where gender equality in representation has not yet been achieved is engineering, whether in college or at the professional level. This imbalance is not only a potentially vicious cycle but also has numerous negative implications. Engineering is a discipline that benefits from and requires diversity in background, experience, thought processes, and other traits that both men and women bring. This project sought to gain a deeper understanding of the issues of female under-representation in engineering programs at the college level, and the resulting under-representation of women awarded undergraduate engineering degrees and the subsequent under-representation in the workforce. Analysis of recruitment processes and interviews with current engineering students were used to study this topic and provide a basis for the creation of a recruitment video.
