TRENDS IN ENGINEERING TECHNICIAN ENROLLMENTS AND GRADUATES.
ALDEN, JOHN D.
TECHNICIAN ENROLLMENTS AND GRADUATES WERE SURVEYED (1965-66) IN FIVE CLASSIFICATIONS WITH VARYING EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS--(1) ENGINEERING TECHNICIAN, (2) PHYSICIAL SCIENCE TECHNICIAN, (3) INDUSTRIAL TECHNICIAN, (4) PRE-ENGINEERING TRANSFER, AND (5) BACHELOR OF TECHNOLOGY. THE DATA WERE USED TO DETERMINE PRESENT TRENDS IN MANPOWER TRAINING AND USE AND TO PREDICT FUTURE SUPPLY AND DEMAND. WHILE THERE IS MAJOR GROWTH IN THE INDUSTRIAL TECHNICIAN PROGRAMS, THE DECREASE IN OVERALL ENROLLMENT FIGURES INDICATES THAT IN THE NEAR FUTURE THE DEMAND FOR QUALIFIED GRADUATES CANNOT BE MET. A JURY OF EXPERTS HAS COMPARED THE BACCALAUREATE ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY PROGRAMS WITH BOTH 2-YEAR AND 4-YEAR ENGINEERING PROGRAMS AND HAS FOUND THE BACCALAUREATE ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY PROGRAMS TO BE MORE FLEXIBLE. A COMMITTEE OF THE ENGINEERS' COUNCIL FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT HAS DEVELOPED GUIDELINES FOR THE EVALUATION AND ACCREDITATION OF THE 4-YEAR PROGRAMS IN ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY. THE REPORT CONTAINS A LIST OF THE INSTITUTIONS WHICH RESPONDED TO THE SURVEY AND OF THE SCHOOLS ACCREDITED BY THE ECPD. (HH)
