Initiation of Professional Practice in Engineering Education. Final Report.
McCollom, K. A.; Lowery, R. L.
An analysis of a practice-oriented master's degree program in engineering is presented. The M. Engr. degree developed by the Division of Engineering of Oklahoma State University differs from the research-oriented M.S. program in that in lieu of completing the traditional thesis, the student prepares for professional practice by completing an internship program. The student writes reports relating to the internship experience and must complete an oral examination on a comprehensive final report. Methodologies of program implementation are presented. (RE)
