attrition
Attrition
  • A factor, normally expressed as a percentage, reflecting the degree of losses of personnel or material due to various causes within a specified period of time.

attrition study hours
Attrition. Study Hours.
  • The typical engineering major today spends 18.5 hours per week studying. The typical social sciences major, by contrast, spends about 14.6 hours.

attrition grade inflation
Attrition. Grade Inflation.
  • STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) have also had less grade inflation than the humanities and social sciences have in the last several decades.
attrition leaving the field
Attrition. Leaving the Field.
  • Roughly fifty percent of the students who begin in engineering leave the field before receiving their engineering degree.
  • Typically half of this attrition occurs during the first year.

attrition causes
Attrition. Causes.
  • Its causes may vary widely from student to student e.g.
    • disinterest in the field of engineering,
    • lack of fundamental preparation,
    • lack of confidence to succeed.
  • A recent study of 113 undergraduates who left engineering in 2004, 2007, and 2008 points to three key reasons:
    • poor teaching and advising;
    • the difficulty of the engineering curriculum;
    • and a lack of “belonging” within engineering.
