SEMINAR ON CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR ENGINEERS (UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, MARCH 26, 1966).
British Columbia Univ., Vancouver.
IN THIS 1966 SEMINAR AT THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, THE NATURE OF CONTINUING EDUCATION WAS DISCUSSED IN TERMS OF COMPANY PROGRAMS AND SUBSIDIZED PART TIME GRADUATE STUDY. PAST EXPERIENCES IN CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR ENGINEERS BY ENGINEERING SOCIETIES AND THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA WERE REVIEWED, AND NEW PROGRAMS FOR ENGINEERS IN THE PROVINCE WERE SUGGESTED AGAINST THE BACKGROUND OF EXISTING ACTIVITIES IN EUROPE, THE UNITED STATES, AND WESTERN CANADA. INDUSTRY'S CONCERN FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION WAS ALSO REAFFIRMED. REPORTS OF THE DISCUSSION GROUPS REVEALED CONCERN FOR GEARING PROGRAMS TO DIFFERENT STAGES OF AN ENGINEER'S CAREER, COURSES ON MODERN MATHEMATICAL LANGUAGE, TECHNICALLY ORIENTED EDUCATION FOR ENGINEERS IN MANAGEMENT AND FOR OLDER ENGINEERS, AND MANAGERIAL AND ECONOMICS EDUCATION FOR YOUNGER ENGINEERS INTERESTED IN POSITIONS IN MANAGEMENT. THE PROPER EDUCATIONAL ROLE OF UNIVERSITIES AND OTHER BODIES WAS ASSESSED. IT WAS THEN RECOMMENDED THAT A JOINT PLANNING COMMITTEE BE FORMED AND THAT AN EXPERIMENTAL SEQUENCE OF COURSES BE OFFERED. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES A PARTICIPANT ROSTER AND A CALENDAR OF TECHNICAL AND MANAGERIAL COURSES.) (LY)
