GENDER AND CAREER ASPIRATIONS OF ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS

Over the years, people have begun to drift from their fields of study to other professions. For the field of Architecture, a male-dominated field, assessing the impact of gender on career aspiration of students has become important. For this reason a survey of architecture students was carried out to determine if their gender influenced their career aspiration. Questionnaires were administered to students from two selected schools of Architecture in South-West, Nigeria. Interviews were also carried out. It was discovered that although most of the students wished to remain in the field of architecture regardless of their gender, most of them do not want to remain forever. Their choice of career aspirations although similar, were in different preferential orders. For the male students; programming, animation, entrepreneurship, furniture making, interior design, fashion, agriculture, writing and catering while for the females; fashion, interior design, entrepreneurship, writing, catering, agriculture, animation and programming
