Abstract

Student avoidance of science and engineering fields is a significant problem that can hinder national competitiveness. In this study, a structural equation model is used to propose two scores to measure student satisfaction with Korean engineering education: the P-score, a measure of the students' satisfaction with aspects of their personalities, and the M-score, a measure of the students' satisfaction with aspects of their majors. Using these two scores to assess the students' satisfaction with engineering education in Korea, several strategic approaches to improve student satisfaction with Korean engineering education are proposed.
