focus group research
Focus Group Research
  • Small focus group interview of UT Austin Christian graduate students, and a professor
  • Several students from secular schools, one from a Christian engineering school
  • Question: “For undergraduate engineering studies, why should a Christian choose (or not choose) a Christian institution?”
  • Conclusion: the perceived costs outweigh the perceived benefits
  • Further research question: “Are there overlooked benefits?”
perceived costs of christian engr ed
Perceived Costs of Christian Engr. Ed.
  • Financial – “is $30k/yr worth it for the normal Joe?”
  • Fewer resources (e.g. labs, class variety) / less prestige
  • Lack of being “in the world” (over-protection) – “someone with a solid Christian foundation should be able to go anywhere”

  • Christian world view in core curriculum (especially humanities)
  • Christian world view in engineering(especially how technology is used)
  • Christian world view in career mentoring
