In a study investigating first-year engineering students’ approaches to learning and studying, a strategic approach to learning was shown to be the best predictor of academic achievement. A surface approach to studying was found to be a negative factor. A questionnaire was distributed to first-year students aiming for Master of Science in Engineering in either Computer Science or Media Technology in the beginning and the end of their first year of study. In the first instance 154 students (62 %) answered the questionnaire and 91 (35 %) participated on both occasions.
