This complete research paper documents how confidence in choice of intended major and self-regulated decision-making competency influence whether a student changes their intended major while participating in a compulsory first-year engineering (FYE) program. Initial major, confidence in that major choice, and self-regulated decision-making competency were documented in the Fall of 2017 for students matriculating into a FYE program. Student enrollment in a major in the Fall of 2018 was connected to this data. Retention in any engineering major and in the student’s intended major were analyzed using logistic regression.
