Sex Role Ideology of Students in a Colombian Engineering Faculty
This paper examined the perceptions of students from different engineering programs at a private university in Cartagena de Indias (N = 243) with the aim of clearly identifying the profile of an engineer in training with a traditionalist ideology of sex roles, because historically this field of education has been assumed as something masculine. By means of a descriptive cross-sectional study and based on the predictor variables sex, age and academic program, significant differences were identified in the first and second variables (more sexist values in men and older people), and by introducing a univariate calculation, the model incorporating the three variables was also significant. Thus, it has been recognised that certain careers (such as Electrical and Electronic Engineering) have consistently presented different values associated with a conservative view of men's and women's roles.
