Civil Engineering Technology Consultants' Workshop (Atlanta, Georgia, May 17-20, 1967).
Dobrovolny, Jerry S.
A consultants' workshop was conducted by the Occupational Education Project of the American Association of Junior Colleges to orient the consultants to recent developments in civil engineering technology and their responsibilities in program development. This document, a summary of workshop presentations and discussions, is intended as a guide to consultants and as an introduction to civil engineering technology for junior colleges administrators. A consultant should be used by junior colleges in conducting meaningful manpower-need studies to determine the feasibility of instituting a program in civil engineering technology. If the decision is made to establish a program, a consultant should assist in selecting a competent individual to serve as head of the department. This individual would then be responsible for developing the curriculum, staff, and facilities through the involvement of consultants and a local advisory committee. The 2-year program in civil engineering technology should include an integrated sequence of educational experiences with a distribution of approximately 19 credit hours in basic science courses, 15 credit hours in non-technical courses, and 38 credit hours in technical courses. The objectives of the program will determine the requirements for faculty, laboratories, potential student population, and other program facets. (HC)
