In 2013, ASEE conducted its first cycle of the Retention and Time-to-Graduation survey as a way to understand and track retention rates in engineering programs.
As part of a greater effort to understand these rates in higher education engineering programs, AEIR recently created a white paper to explain some of the data collected. This white paper explores engineering student retention and time to graduation, while the survey itself provides national benchmarks of undergraduate engineering programs.
The next cycle of the survey opens July 2017.
