The Technical Institute.
Graney, Maurice R.
A comprehensive treatment of the many issues that are being debated in relation to the technical institute, a relatively new and somewhat atypical unit in American higher education, is presented in this book, one of a series dealing with various kinds of institutions of higher education in the United States. The introduction provides a definition of the technical institute, an historical background, and a discussion of technician education outside the United States. Other chapters are--(1) "The Technical Institute and Present-Day Technology," a discussion of the emerging role of the technician and the nature of technician education in higher education, (2) "The Organization and Administration of Technical Institute Education," a description of the private technical institutes, technical institute divisions of complex university systems, publicly controlled local schools, and other types of technical schools, (3) "The Content of Technical Institute Curriculums," a contrast between curriculums with engineering orientation and curriculums which are not engineering oriented, (4) "Technical Institute Faculty," a discussion of faculty characteristics and faculty organizations, and (5) "The Individual and The Technical Institute," a description of the technical institute student, the student's achievement in school and his place in industry, and the technician's recognition by society.
