INFORMATION MANAGEMENT IN ENGINEERING EDUCATION, PROCEEDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE CONFERENCE ON INFORMATION SOURCES, SYSTEMS AND MEDIA IN ENGINEERING EDUCATION HELD AT LEHIGH UNIVERSITY (MAY 19-20, 1966).
TAYLOR, ROBERT S.
THE PURPOSE OF THE CONFERENCE WAS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY AND DIMENSIONS OF A LONG-RANGE PROGRAM DIRECTED TOWARD THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF THE USE OF INFORMATION MEDIA, SYSTEMS, AND RESOURCES IN ENGINEERING EDUCATION. THE APPROACH PROPOSED AS THE BASIS FOR THE CONFERENCE ASSUMED THAT PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDES AND HABITS ARE IN GOOD PART BUILT IN ENGINEERING SCHOOLS. CONSEQUENTLY IT WAS FELT THAT, TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS, ATTENTION MUST BE FOCUSSED ON TOMORROW'S ENGINEER, I.E. TODAY'S STUDENT, FROM UNDERGRADUATE THROUGH CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS. THE PROGRAM PROPOSED AT THE CONFERENCE WOULD UNDERTAKE TO ENCOURAGE THE INTRODUCTION INTO EXISTING ENGINEERING CURRICULA OF PROBLEMS WHICH WOULD STIMULATE AND TRAIN STUDENTS--(1) TO MAKE USE OF EXISTING INFORMATION MEDIA, (2) TO DEVELOP AN AWARENESS OF THE ROLE IN ENGINEERING PRACTICE OF INFORMATION DERIVED FROM THE PERMANENT RECORD, INFORMAL COMMUNICATION, AND EXPERIMENTATION, AND (3) TO DEVELOP THE HABIT OF USING INFORMATION IN ITS VARIETY OF CHANNELS AS A DAILY WORKING TOOL OF HIS PROFESSION.
