Краткое описание

The article examines the efforts of the Women@CENS program to engage both male and female engineering and computer science undergraduates in discussions on gender and disparities between the sexes in these fields. The program provided an intensive research internship for 48 undergraduate students from across the nation. A key component of the program was to encourage students to critically analyze their learning environments and experiences within them. Qualitative and quantitative program evaluation results reveal a range of reactions from men and women participants to these kinds of discussions. While some students were reluctant to have these conversations, others benefited by gathering useful information, developing networks for support, and having their experiences legitimized. Opportunities to solicit students' views on gender and engineering are often lacking in the undergraduate engineering experience; however, such talks may be necessary if real progress and change are to occur.
