Abstract

Students' attitudes toward graduate studies are an often overlooked, but potentially important factor in undergraduate engineering students' decisions of whether or not to pursue graduate studies in engineering. A survey has been developed to measure undergraduate engineering students' attitudes toward graduate studies. The current paper describes the preliminary psychometric properties of the survey and the results of an evaluation of the effects of undergraduate research programs on engineering students' attitudes toward graduate study.
