Abstract

The path from community college to an engineering degree can be filled with obstacles. “What we [still] don‟t know [about transfer students] is staggering 1 .” Few research studies have been done from the perspective of community college graduates from accredited engineering programs. This study will help researchers, policy makers and educators understand behavior of community college transfer students that successfully matriculate and graduate in engineering. It will also help guide short-term tactical and long-term strategic programming for transfer students in engineering.
