The purpose of the present study was to investigate the function of Piaget s cognitive development model for evaluating the attitude of physical education students of Mashhad universities on the problems of career choice, in order to look on one of the most important challenges of physical education students. For that reason, 97 males and 64 females, from physical education students of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Imam Reza and Islamic Azad University were randomly selected and career choice questionnaire were distrbuted. Content validity of this tool was confirmed by experts and internal consistency of questions in a pilot study was 0.83. Data were analyzed by the Spearman\\\\\\\'s rank order correlation and Mann-Whitney μ test. The findings were showed that due to the results of cognitive development of career choice, 5.7% of the students were in the duality stage, 7.7% in the multifold stage, 78.4% in the relativism stage and 8.2% were in the commitment stage with the relativism. The mean of cognitive development in career choice for the students of physical education of Ferdowsi University, Imam Reza University and Azad University consequently were 54.06, 51.81 and 51.53. There was no difference between the place of cognitive development of physical education students of Mashhad’s universities (p>0.05). There was a significant relationship between cognitive developments of career choice of physical education students with their awareness of the importance of the career and its choice (p<0.05). There was a significant relationship between the place of cognitive development of physical education students with the choice of the field of study and the type of university as the factors of success in career choice (p<0.05). There was no relationship between the place of cognitive development of physical education students with gender, the university and the year of their entrance to the university (p<0.05) .Based on the results of the survey, there has been no organizational activity on the development and identification of the process and the ways of career choice in the society. Therefor, holding some classes in order to educate the teachers and students, having some internship courses and motivating the students to have them in professional places are supposed to be useful to enhance mind structure in physical education faculties.
