An Evaluation of Sanitary Engineering Education.
Kaufman, W. J.; Middlebrooks, E. J.
This report is based on the 1966 and 1969 registers of graduate programs in the field of sanitary engineering. Data for both registers were collected by questionnaires. The first in 1965 included 56 colleges and the second in 1969 included 45 colleges offering graduate programs. The following chapters are included: Objective of the Register; Program Titles and Objectives; Faculty, Admission Requirements; Degree Titles, Typical M.S. Programs, Degrees Awarded and Present Student Enrollment; Initial Employment of 1966-67 and 1967-68 Degree Recipients; Financial Support; Summary and Conclusions. The three principal program titles used are sanitary engineering, water resources engineering, and environmental engineering. The preponderance of programs are in water science and engineering. Programs are generally depicted as interdisciplinary in character. The report does not evaluate the quality of the programs, but recognizes that "quality is most dependent on the excellence of the individual faculty members." Numerous charts and graphs are employed in presenting data on the programs, degrees, faculty, and trends. (PR)
