ENGINEERING MANPOWER BULLETIN NUMBER 9.
ALDEN, JOHN D.
DESIGNED TO INFORM LEADERS IN INDUSTRY, GOVERNMENT, AND EDUCATION, WHOSE RESPONSIBILITY INCLUDES AWARENESS OF ENGINEERING MANPOWER DEVELOPMENTS, THIS BULLETIN REPORTS A STUDY CONDUCTED BY THE ENGINEERING MANPOWER COMMISSION OF ENGINEERS IN THE ARMED SERVICES. THE WORK OF THE COMMISSION IS TO ASSURE THE MOST EFFECTIVE UTILIZATION OF ENGINEERING MANPOWER IN MEETING THE NATION'S NEEDS. THIS BULLETIN REPRESENTS A PRELIMINARY STUDY RATHER THAN A COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS. RELATIVE TO THE TOTAL SITUATION, THE BULLETIN REPORTS 34,000 ENGINEERS ON ACTIVE DUTY, BUT THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE SUCH NON-UNIFORMED SERVICES AS THE COAST GUARD, COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY, OR PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE. RESERVE UNITS WERE NOT INCLUDED, NOR WERE ENLISTED MEN IN THE SERVICES. GENERALLY, AT THE BACHELOR'S LEVEL, THERE IS AN APPARENT SURPLUS OF ENGINEERS ON DUTY AS COMPARED TO DESIGNATED REQUIREMENTS. ON THE BASIS OF ADVANCED DEGREES, THERE IS A DEMAND FOR 15,500 MASTER'S AND DOCTOR'S DEGREE ENGINEERING GRADUATES, BUT ONLY ABOUT 8,500 QUALIFIED MEN TO FILL THE NEED. BEYOND THESE GENERAL OBSERVATIONS, THE BULLETIN DISCUSSES (1) ENGINEERS IN THE AIR FORCE, (2) ENGINEERS IN THE ARMY, (3) ENGINEERS IN THE NAVY, (4) CIVIL ENGINEERS CORPS, (5) SHIP ENGINEERING, (6) ORDNANCE AND AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING, (7) OTHER SPECIAL GROUPS, (8) GENERAL LINE SPECIALISTS, AND (9) ENGINEERS IN THE MARINE CORPS. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE AT NO COST FROM THE ENGINEERING MANPOWER COMMISSION, 345 EAST 47TH STREET, NEW YORK, NEW YORK 10017. (DH)
