Minorities in Engineering
The effectiveness of undergraduate research programs on retention, graduation, and intention for graduate studies has been well-documented. Most of the programs focus on the undergraduate research experience among upper level college students. In this work in progress report, we focus on an undergraduate research program focusing primarily on first and second year students. Participants’ attitude towards study in STEM, career options, and STEM awareness is measured, together with a one-year tracking in progress and retention.
