Student attrition from universities is an issue of concern globally. However, there is a lack of systematic studies to understand the factors that might influence students’ attrition from engineering programs. In this case study, statistical data for two groups of students admitted during the academic years 2000–2005 and 2006–2011 was used. The analysis suggests that the students attrition could be influenced by admission requirements, program completion requirements and curriculum design and contents. Further, first year students require more attention.
