Abstract

Presented here are preliminary results of a qualitative research study seeking to find out what it is about the engineering classroom environments that women students find unappealing. These findings are important in guiding faculty and administrators in presenting engineering classes which are equitable to both male and female students. Such changes are critical for long term impacts on recruitment, retention and graduation of more women in this field.
