Results of the first known survey of learning style preferences of electrical and computer engineering technology (ECET) students are reported. Data from many surreys of learning style preferences of engineering students are available in the literature and data from the ECET survey are contpared and contrasted with those from these earlier surveys. These data sets are used to formulate differences in learning styles between ECET. students and engineering students and show that ECET students are active, highly visual, sequential learners. Definitions and descriptions of engineering technology and engineering are used to postulate reasons for differences in learning style preferences and to provide recommended teaching methods. Learning styles of students at different matriculation levels are also considered and linked to discipline selection and retention.
