Purdue University Survey

From the researchers:

In February of this year, NAE published a study entitled “Engineering Technology in the United States.” This document made several recommendations regarding further study with the intent of developing an understanding of students, their characteristics, academic progression beginning in grade school, and furthering our understanding of why different groups graduate at higher rates than others and issues encountered in the workplace.

We represent a subset of individuals interested in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) education. The purpose of our committee is to further study the students and graduates from STEAM programs. Later we intend to perform follow up interviews to gain in depth understanding of those volunteering through this survey.

Please take a few minutes to provide us with important information to further our understanding of STEAM students. There is no identifying information collected (unless you volunteer for an interview at a later date), we do collect demographics only to study differences in responses based on gender, age, experiences.

The survey can be found at


(if you have graduated with a bachelor’s degree)



(if you are still working on your undergraduate degree).
