Attitudes towards learning are important factors on the learners' levels of goal setting, problem solving abilities, their beliefs towards learning, their inner and external motivations in the process of learning and all the academic performances they perform. In this study, it is aimed to analyze the attitudes of university students in terms of different variables by using screening model. The attitudes of university students towards learning are evaluated from the points of four sub-dimensions (the nature of learning, anxiety, expectation, and openness), their genders and academic achievements. It has been seen that prospective engineers and technical teachers have positive attitudes towards learning. (C) 2013 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
