Abstract

The demand for skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is consistently high worldwide. However, the number of female students studying these subjects at higher education level has been consistently under represented, especially in engineering. In this paper, we share some insights into the reasons why some female engineering students in Malaysia and Kazakhstan have chosen to study engineering, and what they think is preventing more of their female contemporaries from studying engineering.
