    1 INTRODUCTION. The persistence of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students is of great concern in higher education, as approximately only 53% of declared engineering majors obtain an engineering degree after 6 years (Ohland et al., ) and only 40–60% of students declaring a STEM major actually graduate in STEM (Ellis, Fosdick, & Rasmussen, ).Cited by: 1.

Entry and Persistence of Women and Minorities in College Science and Engineering Education Description: This study examines the gaps related to gender and race-ethnicity in entry, persistence, and attainment of postsecondary science and engineering education.

ERIC - ED - Entry and Persistence of Women and Minorities in College Science and Engineering Education. Research and Development Report., This book contains statistical data on the gaps related to gender and ethnicity on the entrance and attainment of postsecondary science and engineering by: 7.

This study examines the gaps related to gender and race/ethnicity in entrance, persistence, and attainment of postsecondary science and engineering (S&E) education. After reviewing selected prior research and examining potentially relevant variables in two National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) surveys, several variables were selected to create a multivariate model for use in two Cited by: By mapping the structural impediments to entry and persistence faced by women, people of color, and other underrepresented groups in higher education and in the workforce and providing strategies to help improve these interconnected systems, the authors lay a foundation from which we can work toward greater inclusion and : $ National Center for Education Statistics, Entry and Persistence of Women and Minorities in College Science and Engineering Education (NCES ).

Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Education, During college, many students switch from their planned major to another, particularly so when that planned major was in a Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) field.

A worrying statistic shows that persistence in one of these majors is much lower for women and minorities, suggesting that this may be a leaky joint in the STEM Cited by:   In this paper we examine the level and determinants of entering college students’ plans to major in engineering.

While the overall level of interest in engineering has fluctuated between anda very large gender gap in freshman interest remains. We find that the percent of first-year women who plan to major in engineering is roughly the same today as in the early by: Women and minorities are even less likely to persist in a STEM field major during college than are male and non-minority students (National Science Board, ).

As many feel that a strong STEM workforce is important for future development, it is essential to understand the reasons for under-representations of certain groups within this by: engineering”, Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and rates at institutions of post secondary education: that persistence is positive, that persistence is an indicator of a program's.

Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering Packard et al. Earning a four-year degree in a STEM field makes a difference for future earnings and job prospects. For example, most STEM occupations require a bachelor’s degree, and indi-viduals who earn a bachelor’s degree are expected to accrue one million dollars more over.
