N.S. Vijayalakshmi, A.H. Sequeira

Abstract


The study aims to empirically test the relationship between types of campus adaptations across gender engineering undergraduate B.Tech students alone pursuing a four year study at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT’s) and National Institute of Technology (NIT’s) in India. The independent t – test was run with SPSS vs 21 to determine the nature of campus adaptations of IIT’s and NIT’s between undergraduate male students (n = 1268) and female students of (n = 152) with the multistage random sample of n = 1420. There is a significant relationship on campus adaptations among students by gender indicating that; campus adaptations did vary which could be attributed to the lower strength of the sample size. However, if a qualitative approach is adopted with interviews held to seek out information on nature of adaptability to campus environments, it could introspect more in-depth on the nature and levels of adaptability of female students witnessing challenges at campuses of higher learning.
