Abstract

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education has been given much attention in recent years. While a number of issues affect student success, the area of greatest concern is student retention. Standardized-test scores, study habits, and living on- or off-campus are not the only factors that affect retention rates. Students are more likely to stay in college if they have clear goals, are active learners, and are active participants in campus activities. This paper discusses student success in engineering and science, with a focus on active learning through a research and internship program that provides students with mentoring and financial support.
