Multiple-Institution Database for Investigating Engineering Longitudinal Development


In its current form, MIDFIELD can answer many research questions. Results from the current dataset are likely to represent other large public universities. When data from all institutions are aggregated, it is possible to disaggregate by multiple demographic variables at once. The inclusion of all undergraduate students makes it possible other disciplines as well as engineering. As the database expands, it will become easier to study institution-level phenomena.
