abstract

  • 2018, Springer International Publishing AG. This paper describes a collaborative faculty-student research project examining female students perspectives on their academic and social experiences studying engineering at an American branch campus in Qatar. It draws on data collected from a series of focus groups, an anonymous survey, and self-reflexive research team meetings. The experiences are discussed in relation to the universitys institutional strengths and challenges in terms of supporting female students for working in engineering-related careers in the Arab Gulf and recommendations are given.
