Our study investigates the role of team conflict in the context of student design project work. Using data collected on 55 teams enrolled in a team-based engineering design program over three time periods, our results showed that the proportion of women and the existence of multiplex ties among team members have a positive influence on team performance, while the number of subgroups and team conflict were negatively related to team performance. Implications for team-based engineering programs are drawn.
