OP-TEC Releases White Paper on Entering Students Survey: Reasons for Enrolling in Optics and Photonics Technology Programs

Entering Students Survey: Reasons for Enrolling in Optics and Photonics Technology Programs

As part of OP-TEC partner colleges’ efforts to improve recruiting strategies, it has become important to understand the success of current recruiting strategies. New enrollees in Fall 2012 were surveyed to better understand the type of student currently being recruited to the program and how they made their decision to enroll. This report begins with a review of other research about what motivates students to choose a college and a STEM program. The current study is then described, including results and recommendations for OP-TEC partner colleges.
