Abstract:

This study was concerned with attempting to evaluate the usefulness of an engineering orientation experience for selected high school students in influencing their career commitments. The emphasis was placed on reaching women and minority students who had completed their sophomore or junior year in high school and who had done well in mathematics and science courses. Results showed that the program was influential since there was a decided change towards a study in engineering increase of 50 percent after the completion of the program. Author
