Abstract: Sophomore year for engineering undergraduates is competitive, high-stakes, and where many students choose to leave engineering for alternate majors. Through the lens of Actor-Network Theory, this paper explains the existence and significance of networks of power within the engineering sophomore class as observed ethnographically, with specific attention to the implications of power differentials for engineering persistence and retention.
