The Training of Professional Engineers: Booklet No. 5.
Engineering Industry Training Board, London (England).
This document outlines various approaches to training of professional engineers in the British system. There are a number of educational paths which the student engineer may follow, involving various periods spent in "sandwich" courses, university or technical college courses, and on-the-job training in an industrial situation. The elements discussed in relation to all of these paths are: induction (i.e. hiring and orientation to the firm); engineering practice; design appreciation (i.e., a systems approach to understanding the particular firm's organization); work organization; and objective training. Sample training programs are outlined. (MF)
