Engineering and the physical sciences share many common foundations for knowledge, so how do students choose between one and the other? Our multidisciplinary research team is investigating how first-year university students choose between the physical sciences and engineering. In this seminar we will share preliminary results from an online survey conducted at MUN in Sept 2022. We will facilitate discussion on how results from our study may inform outreach and pedagogy for science and engineering, and thus foster greater attraction and retention of undergraduate students in STEM fields, and greater career sustainability and life satisfaction for our graduates.
