Abstract

The author focuses on graduate career change women and the type of women who are willing to try to make the difficult transition to engineering and are able to succeed. The source of their lack of encouragement to enter engineering is examined. The career change woman engineer is compared with the traditional US male engineer in general characteristics. Lastly, the preferred learning styles of the career change woman are also discussed.
