    Abstract

    Female students are strongly under represented in courses offered by the School of Computing at Curtin University of Technology. Recruitment of female students becomes an issue not only under equity concerns, but because retention within the School is higher. This paper looks at a pilot study to construct a profile of a typical female Computing student at Curtin, both undergraduate and graduate, in particular with an indication of the timing of the decisions which led to their enrolment in these courses. Such a profile might allow the School of Computing to focus its PR and marketing to the appropriate groups/schools/ages.
