N1 - Funding Information: Dr. Matusovich is an Assistant Professor and Assistant Department Head for Graduate Programs in Virginia Tech’s Department of Engineering Education. She has her doctorate in Engineering Education and her strengths include qualitative and mixed methods research study design and implementation. She is/was PI/Co-PI on 8 funded research projects including a CAREER grant. She has won several Virginia Tech awards including a Dean’s Award for Outstanding New Faculty. Her research expertise includes using motivation and related frameworks to study student engagement in learning, recruitment and retention in engineering programs and careers, faculty teaching practices and intersections of motivation and learning strategies. Matusovich has authored a book chapter, 10 journal manuscripts and more than 50 conference papers. Funding Information: To better understand these issues, a survey of engineering students’ career decision-making and preparedness was undertaken. This survey is part of the Professional Engineering Pathway Study (PEPS), a longitudinal, mixed-methods study funded by the National Science Foundation. This study takes a national perspective, collecting data from six U.S. institutions across three states, including a Western private university, a Western public university, a Midwestern private university, a Midwestern public university, and two Eastern public universities, one of which is a residential school and the other of which is a commuter school. These schools were purposively sampled for their geographic, institutional, and student body diversity, to allow for the examination of both personal and contextual (e.g., regional, institutional, disciplinary, etc.) factors that affect engineering students’ career choices. Together, they enroll approximately 16,000 engineering undergraduates.6 Funding Information: Ruth A. Streveler is an Associate Professor in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University. Dr. Streveler has been the Principal Investigator or co-Principal Investigator of ten grants funded by the US National Science Foundation. She has published articles in the Journal of Engineering Education and the International Journal of Engineering Education and has contributed to the Cambridge Handbook of Engineering Education Research. She has presented workshops to over 500 engineering faculty on four continents. Dr. Streveler’s primary research interests are investigating students’ understanding of difficult concepts in engineering science and helping engineering faculty conduct rigorous research in engineering education. In 2015, Dr. Streveler was inducted as an ASEE Fellow.
