FLORIDA: The University of Central Florida is the only public school in the state that doesn’t offer a Bachelor of Civil Engineering degree.
But, according to a survey of 4,000 engineering majors, students rated the school’s engineering majors lower than the other majors.
The survey found that students rated engineering majors on the same scale as computer science and mathematics, and the only major that students ranked higher than engineering was the social science.
The top four engineering majors in the survey were the Civil Engineering Department, which received the highest score of 79 percent, followed by the Computer Science Department at 68 percent, the Engineering Science Department with 60 percent, and Physics at 51 percent.
The lowest grade among engineering majors was an “A” for Engineering Mechanics at 47 percent.
A survey of 2,400 students by the school found that most students felt that their major was not an appropriate fit for their interests.
The study also found that many students felt a sense of self-doubt that would hinder their engineering careers.
Many students also feel that their engineering major was poorly integrated with the curriculum, which could affect their career prospects, according the survey.
This could be because they did not complete the required four years of courses in the engineering curriculum, and because they may not have studied engineering in the first place, according a survey.
Students also felt that they did poorly in class, according another survey.
The College Board released a study in February that found that half of all students, whether from high school, college, or graduate school, felt they were “marginalized” in the academic environment.
The report found that “the perception that the university is less inclusive and equitable in its academic offerings has led to students and faculty feeling marginalized, discriminated against, and underrepresented.”
The College Bar Association of Florida issued a similar report in September.
In that study, students surveyed felt that “they felt as if they are excluded from a university environment, as well as feel like their peers in other areas of college life were more inclusive.”
