ABSTRACT
The article presents research examining the student perspective about continuing studies in engineering using expectancy-value theory of physiologist John Eccles. The researchers focus on the values they place on earning an engineering degree to understand how students choose to become engineers. The author also notes that seeing more ways to practice engineering makes more opportunity for students to find a match on the kind of work they will have in the future.
