Multipronged approach needed to recruit female students

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

The situation faced by the United States and Australia with regard to the enrolment of women in engineering are presented. The engineering clinic concept achieves what a female friendly curriculum should have - cooperative pedagogy, contextual and social implications of what the students are learning in the classroom, hands-on-experience and so on. The concept was developed along the lines of the clinic experience that physicians in training obtain in medical schools. Countries that have a lower industrial development index do better than most industrialized countries in lowering occupational gender segregation.
