This study investigated female engineering students' perceptions of college learning experiences by using the pipeline theory. One-hour qualitative interviews were conducted to obtain details of female engineering students' learning experiences. Thirty female students of engineering from various engineering majors voluntarily participated in the study. The participants were senior college students from two public universities in Taiwan. Phenomenological qualitative analysis was used to identify five themes in ''the motivation for pursuing an engineering major'', seven themes in ''learning experiences during higher education period'', and four themes in ''future career development''. Overall, most of findings were supported by previous research results.
