This Work-In-Progress aims to use the Multiple-Institution Database for Investigating Engineering Longitudinal Development (MIDFIELD) to investigate on different undergraduate student populations who switch into and from engineering. The database contains 19 partner institutions comprising more than 1,000,000 individual student entries and over 12% of the United States’ engineering students. This Work-In-Progress (WIP), aims to take the first step in better understanding gaps in higher education. In this WIP we use a multi-institutional database to see the portion of undergraduate migrators; Both those who migrate from engineering and those who migrate to engineering from other majors. This WIP will be the foundation of future research to investigate the gaps in higher education to attract and retain students.
