SELECTION AND IN-HOUSE DEVELOPMENT OF SYSTEMS ENGINEERS.
MARDON, JASPER
PROCESS INDUSTRIES REQUIRE SYSTEMS ENGINEERS WHO CAN DESIGN, BUILD, AND IMPLEMENT A TOTAL SYSTEM OF INTERACTING COMPONENTS, WITH OR WITHOUT A DIGITAL COMPUTER. SINCE FEW COURSES ARE PROVIDED IN THIS DISCIPLINE, COMPANIES MUST DESIGN INPLANT PROGRAMS. TRAINEES MAY BE PH.D.S IN CONTROL ENGINEERING, PHYSICS, OR CHEMICAL ENGINEERING, RECENT GRADUATES WITH A B.A. OR M.A., OR PRACTICING ENGINEERS WITH EXPERIENCE IN INSTRUMENTATION OR CONTROL. THE AUTHOR'S COMPANY DESIGNED A FORMAL PROGRAM WHICH INCLUDED CONTROL ENGINEERING THEORY, METHODS, AND DESIGN, ANALOG AND DIGITAL COMPUTER LOGIC, FUNDAMENTALS, AND TECHNIQUES. SINCE THIS PROGRAM SEEMED TOO DEMANDING, THE COMPANY HAS USED AN INFORMAL SEMINAR SYSTEM WHICH FOLLOWS A SIMILAR PROGRAM BUT DOES NOT INTERFERE WITH EMPLOYEES' WORK SCHEDULE. THERE ARE BEGINNING TO BE AVAILABLE 12- MONTH MASTER'S DEGREE COURSES, PARTICULARLY IN BRITAIN. ALSO ENGINEERS CAN ATTEND CONFERENCES AND SHORT SUMMER COURSES. WITHIN THE PLANT, EVENING SEMINARS TO WHICH MANAGEMENT AS WELL AS ENGINEERS ARE INVITED CAN DO A GREAT DEAL TO IMPROVE UNDERSTANDING AND COMMUNICATION. THE TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT JOURNAL IS PUBLISHED MONTHLY BY THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT, 313 PRICE PLACE, BOX 5307, MADISON, WISCONSIN 53705. (LY)
