Research

research overview

  • Dr. Kotys-Schwartz has focused her research in engineering student learning, retention, and student identity development within the context of engineering design. She is currently investigating the impact of cultural norms in an engineering classroom context, performing comparative studies between engineering education and professional design practices, examining holistic approaches to student retention, and exploring informal learning in engineering education. Potential outcomes for engineering, include: improved student attitudes towards engineering, development of an engineering identity, knowledge of engineering practices, and broadened participation in engineering. And, identification of the system of factors that allow for an effective 'inclusive-excellence' model; retaining our traditional and underrepresented students in engineering.
