An Investigation Into Public Post-Secondary Electronic Technology Programs In Texas With Implications For Planning.
Wright, Jerauld B.
To develop information which the Texas Education Agency could use in planning the development of electronic technology programs in Texas junior colleges, this study was designed to provide: (1) an assessment of current programs, (2) information about the employment of electronic technicians in Texas, and (3) other types of information for use in planning facilities and equipment. Questionnaires were used to survey the 78 commercial research or testing laboratories, 21 telephone companies, 59 commercial broadcasting stations, and 15 manufacturers of electronic equipment who did not maintain testing laboratories, while questionnaires and personal interviews were used to gather data from the 19 junior colleges who participated. A chi-square test of significance of independence of two variables was applied to each of the instructional units listed in the questionnaire. Conclusions were: (1) School and industrial representatives were not in total agreement as to the teaching emphasis, (2) They closely agreed on the future importance of the units and types of equipment a technician should be able to operate well, and (3) Junior colleges have not been a principal supplier of electronic technicians. Recommendations are included. (GR)
