Energy-Related Scientists and Engineers: A Statistical Profile of Recent Entrants Into the Work Force, 1978.
Bell, Sharon E.; And Others
Examined are the educational and employment characteristics of scientists and engineers who graduated during the years 1972, 1974, 1975, and 1976, with special attention to those whose work involves energy. The characteristics of energy-related graduates to those of more experienced scientists and engineers involved in energy activities are compared. Presented for the first time are tabulations on employment involving specific energy sources and activities. Other characteristics discussed include educational level, salary, primary work activity, type of employer, and the proportion of graduates who found employment in their major fields. Data are from the 1976 and 1978 National Surveys of Recent Science and Engineering Graduates, and the 1976 National Survey of Natural and Social Scientists and Engineers, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy.
