Freshman and sophomore engineering students participated in an exploratory Group Counseling Program designed to help them strengthen their academic achievement, increase their understanding of the engineer's professional role in society, clarify their career goals, and improve their self-understanding and personal-social adjustment. The program included special attention for underachieving students. Leadership was provided by advanced master's and doctoral candidates from the College of Education who had related academic and professional experience in the area of counseling and guidance. The explanation of the results includes both a description of certain common characteristics which seem to typify engineering students and a summary of the curricular, administrative, and student personnel implications of the findings.
