A Study to Determine the Educational Needs of Industrial Technologists in the Automotive-Type Manufacturing Industries.
Hall, Ronald Walter
Questionnaires were used to gather data about educational needs of industrial technologists in the automotive-type manufacturing industries in the United States. Each of the 101 establishments received four questionnaires; 67 (66.3 percent) returned one or more of the questionnaires. The responses of the selected individuals were analyzed by multiple classification analysis of variance and descriptive statistical methods. The conclusions were: (1) Manufacturing industries contacted will need approximately 14,897 (40 percent) additional technologists by 1974 to fill new and replacement positions, (2) Employment requirements are the same throughout the automotive-type manufacturing industries, (3) Employment requirements include education and training in specific subject areas and suggested practical work experience, (4) Higher education is presently doing an incomplete job of education and training except in science and mathematics, (5) Education and training of automotive technologists could be improved in several different areas, and (6) Future opportunities for technologists in the automotive-type manufacturing industries are excellent. This Ph.D. thesis was submitted to Arizona State University. (GR)
