Covenant University (NIGERIA)
Most sciences and science-related disciplines (popularly known as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and professions are largely oriented towards the male student, staffs and employees. Females are under-represented at every level of activity both in the study and in the employment. The purpose of the study is to examine the gender attrition rate differences among Estate Management students of Universities within South-West, Nigeria being one of the fields within the STEM range of discipline scope since it has a scientific focus. The enrolment and graduation list of the students was used to determine the attrition rate of Estate Management student by gender. This is for a period of five (5) years garnered from three universities in South-West Nigeria namely: Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, University of Lagos, Akoka and Covenant University, Ota. These Universities fall within the group of universities that have produced reasonable number of graduates over time, up to ten sets of graduates over the period 2007 and 2016. However, this study will only consider five sets due to constraints in assessing the needed data. The study applied quantitative data using descriptive statistics such as tables, percentages and mean. The findings is in correspondence with what obtains in literature that female student’s attrition is higher in fields that are male-dominated. Since Estate Management is male dominated, the attrition rate of females is more in the universities sampled. A useful recommendation for the study was provided.
