Abstract

The objective of the present investigation is to analyze the relationship that satisfaction presents with self-efficacy, engagement, and anxiety; in a sample of students from 3 engineering degrees (systems, electronics and chemistry) of a public university in Lima - Peru. The participants were 53 students (45 men (86%) and 8 women (14%)) between 17 and 25 years old (Mage = 20.0, S = 2.0). The correlational analysis showed that satisfaction is positively, strongly, and significantly related to academic self-efficacy, and positive, moderate, and significant with grades; on the other hand, it is not related to anxiety or academic engagement.
