The role of physics and mathematics courses in influencing students' performance in engineering programs

The role of physics and mathematics courses was evaluated in influencing students' academic performance in an undergraduate engineering program. Statistical data for 200 students in their final or pre-final years of study was used to relate performance in the above-mentioned courses with their overall performance in the program. Significant majority of students who performed well in physics and mathematics courses also performed well in the program, and vice versa. The analysis suggests that students' performance in such courses may be used as an early indicator of their ability to continue in engineering programs successfully.
