In this project, a retrospective statistical analysis was completed to try to establish the correlation between low-level engineering courses and several measures of student success at graduation. The intended outcomes of the study include a tool for prediction of GPA at graduation based on sophomore level courses. This tool will be useful for advising to identify at-risk students for early intervention and remediation. Furthermore, the tool will be useful for recruiting, as students who are likely to be successful in graduate programs can be identified and recruited early in their academic careers.
