Engineering and Technician Enrollments Fall 1968.
Alden, John D.
Reported are the results of the enrollment survey conducted by the Engineering Manpower Commission of Engineers Joint Council in the fall of 1968. Questionnaires were sent to all the engineering schools in the United States; 265 schools responded. Some of the undergraduate results are (1) freshman engineering enrollments are down, although by a small number; (2) sophomore and junior enrollments are down; (3) senior enrollments are up; and (4) there is a large percentage increase in fifth-year senior enrollments. Both full-time and part-time engineering graduate student enrollments are down with full-time enrollments showing a 19 percent decline. The greatest drop seems to have been in master's degree programs. (RS)
