PROSPECTS OF ENGINEERING GRADUATES 1967.
ALDEN, JOHN
TO KEEP UP-TO-DATE ON TRENDS IN JOBS FOR ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY GRADUATES, THE COMMISSION HAS TAKEN SURVEYS OF JUNE GRADUATING CLASSES SINCE 1957, EXCEPT FOR 1962-63. THIS 1967 SURVEY OF 229 ENGINEERING SCHOOLS AND 85 OTHER TECHNICAL SCHOOLS PROVIDES DATA ON KINDS OF INSTITUTIONS, CURRICULUMS, POSTGRADUATE ACTIVITY, STARTING SALARIES, ENROLLMENT TRENDS, AND KINDS OF DEGREES. THE DEMAND FOR NEW GRADUATES REMAINED HIGH, WITH 98 PERCENT IMMEDIATELY COMMITTED TO JOBS, GRADUATE STUDY, OR OTHER ACTIVITY, AND THE OTHERS CONSIDERING JOB OFFERS. THE NUMBER GOING DIRECTLY INTO GRADUATE STUDY APPEARED TO HAVE STABILIZED AT ABOUT 25 PERCENT AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF RAPID INCREASE. MILITARY SERVICE TOOK 9 PERCENT OF THE CIVILIAN GRADUATES AS WELL AS THE 517 ENGINEERING GRADUATES OF ARMED FORCES SCHOOLS. THE NON-ACCREDITED INSTITUTIONS (WITH ONLY 7 PERCENT OF ALL ENGINEERING GRADUATES) HAD ONLY 12-13 PERCENT ENTERING GRADUATE STUDY, THE REMAINDER GOING DIRECTLY INTO JOBS. TECHNOLOGY GRADUATE ACTIVITIES ARE REPORTED SEPARATELY BY 2-YEAR ASSOCIATE AND 4-YEAR BACHELOR OF CHEMICAL AND $724 IN AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING TO A LOW OF $614 IN NON-TECHNICAL JOBS. OTHER DATA ARE SUMMARIZED AND COMPARED. COPIES OF THE QUESTIONNAIRES ARE INCLUDED.
