NSF Grantees Poster Session
The Professional Engineering Pathways Study (PEPS), is a three-year collaborative study involving Stanford (lead institution) with a subcontract to Arizona State, Purdue and Virginia Tech (NSF-EEC-1360665, 1360956, and 1360958). The primary aim of PEPS is to better understand how engineering undergraduates’ experiences and beliefs impact their career goals and activities.
The project has two subgoals: • To investigate how engineering students develop beliefs about their career options and abilities, and how these beliefs influence their career plans and preparation over time, and • To engage university administrators, faculty, and staff in using insights into early career decision pathways to improve undergraduate engineering programs and career services.
In order to accomplish our objectives, PEPS’ research design consists of two elements: a Research Element whose primary focus is the first subgoal, and a Community of Practice (CoP) Element designed to address the second subgoal. Another paper provided a description of the overall structure and aims of the project. This paper will focus on the CoP element of PEPS.
