EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM IN ENGINEERING AND DESIGN DATA PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY. FINAL REPORT.
KOHR, RICHARD L.; WOLFE, GEORGE P.
AN EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM IN ENGINEERING AND DESIGN DATA PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY WAS UNDERTAKEN TO DEVELOP A PROPOSED CURRICULUM OUTLINE AND ADMISSION STANDARDS FOR OTHER INSTITUTIONS IN THE PLANNING OF PROGRAMS TO TRAIN COMPUTER PROGRAMMERS. OF THE FIRST CLASS OF 26 STUDENTS, 17 COMPLETED THE PROGRAM AND 12 (INCLUDING ONE WHO DID NOT GRADUATE) WERE EMPLOYED AS COMPUTER PROGRAMMERS, WHILE THOSE WHO ENTERED MILITARY SERVICE WERE ASSIGNED DIRECTLY TO DATA PROCESSING UNITS. OF THE 12 PROGRAMMERS, EIGHT WORKED IN BUSINESS RATHER THAN IN SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS. A FOLLOWUP STUDY SHOWED THE NEED FOR PROVIDING BUSINESS COURSES AND INSTRUCTION IN BUSINESS ORIENTED COMPUTER LANGUAGES, PLUS SOME WORK WITH A HIGH SPEED PRINTER AND MAGNETIC TAPE OR DISC STORAGE DEVICES. A PROGRAM IN BUSINESS ORIENTED COMPUTER SCIENCE WAS THEREFORE DEVELOPED. THE REPORT INCLUDES COURSE DESCRIPTIONS AND SEQUENCES FOR THE SCIENTIFIC AND THE BUSINESS PROGRAMS, A DESCRIPTION OF THE SELECTION TEST BATTERY, A FLOOR PLAN OF THE INSTRUCTIONAL FACILITIES, AND LISTS OF EQUIPMENT, TEXTBOOKS, AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS.
