A Comparative Study of Proficiencies Utilized by Electrical Engineering Graduates of the University of Alabama and the Core Curricula in Electrical Engineering and Electrical Engineering Technology.
Byers, William S.
A survey of 531 electrical engineering graduates of the University of Alabama who had received bachelor's degrees in the years 1950 through 1974 showed that the educational needs of a majority of the respondents could have been adequately served by the mathematics levels present in the engineering technology program. In addition, certain subjects not required in the engineering curriculum but included in the engineering technology program were considered extremely important by the practitioners. Thus, it appears that the philosophy of engineering technology education, with its reduced emphasis upon mathematics and its orientation to practice, might indeed be more appropriate for a major portion of positions now classified as engineering rather than engineering technology.
