The purpose of this paper is to examine the contributions that male and female engineering students make to the engineering design team process. This project uses Eberhardt's team functions as an observational protocol to examine the team process as it occurs in the Engineering Practices Introductory Course Sequence at the Colorado School of Mines. Design (EPICS) consists of the first two courses in Engineering Design and provides an ideal setting in which to examine the influence of gender on the team process.
