dc.description.abstract The purpose of this empirical study which forms part of a team research project, was to identify personality variables which may influence the academic achievement of first-year engineering students. It was undertaken in the light of the relatively high failure rate of first-year students and the negative implications this has for an institute of higher learning and the students. The Bureau for University education aims to establish a better student selection mechanism. The test group consisted of first-year engineering students who registered at the Rand Afrikaans University during 1989, 1990 and 1991. The study focused on a single non-cognitive factor, namely personality and its influence on academic achievement. The 16-PF-Questionnaire was used as a measuring instrument. Student's t-test was utilized to establish significant differences between the two identified groups. The available data was processed by means of the BMDP-3S computer programme. The findings of this empirical study indicate that personality cannot be utilized in the prediction of academic achievement as a single factor, but in combination with other factors it forms an integral part of the selection mechanism. The successful engineering students differed significantly from the less successful engineering students with regard to the following factors of the 16-PF-Questionnaire: Factor G (dutifulness) and Factor N (shrewdness). en
