Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


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.
