A Comparative Analysis of Industrial Technology Education in Minnesota and the Requirements of Industry.
Strom, Irving Elner
Questionnaires designed to determine to what extent existing 4-year industrial technology curriculums in the State of Minnesota were meeting the needs of the selected Minnesota industries were returned from all existing 4-year industrial technology programs and from 111 (80 percent) selected industries. Some of the findings were: (1) Aeronautics, packaging design, and synthetics are new curriculum areas being planned, (2) A state committee will be developed to improve and coordinate 4-year non-teaching programs in the state, (3) A continual and substantial increase in the number of graduates is projected, and (4) Graduates are most frequently employed in management, industrial engineering, product development, and supervisory positions. Some of the 11 conclusions and recommendations concern suggested curriculum emphasis, the formation of state committees for advisory and coordinating functions, the use of industrial personnel, and clarification and standardization of technical terminology and titles. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to the University of Northern Colorado. (GR)
