Engineering Pathways

Welcome to a site devoted to the exploration and dissemination of research on engineering and engineering education in Canada.

Through research conducted by Dr. Sandra Ingram and her collaborators, published works at both the industry and classroom levels focus on key themes such as:

  • Mentorship and career satisfaction in engineering
  • Gender differences
  • The value of educational work experiences (co-op internship and/or summer work experience) in influencing career mobility
  • Communication styles and effective teamwork
