Canada Intention to Pursue an Engineering Career

A survey conducted by Engineers Canada (2016) found that men are more definitive about their intention to pursue a career in engineering compared to women. The most recent data of the 2017 graduating cohort (Engineers Canada, 2017) shows that the majority of students will definitely pursue a career in engineering. When the same group of students was asked how prepared they were to enter the engineering workforce, the majority of them felt they were somewhat or very prepared to do so.
