Abstract

Describes a postal questionnaire survey to explore the attitudes and intentions of final‐year undergraduate engineers. Addresses the perceptions of the engineer and engineering. Concludes that the most commercially minded students intended to leave engineering; the manufacturing industry has a poorer image than oil or chemical companies; sex discrimination is still pronounced within engineering; those intending careers in engineering see Europe as a less important part of their career.
