Electronic Curriculum Revision. Final Report.
Estep, Darrell A.
This report presents materials from a study to survey and identify the electronic technician needs of industry and to relate those needs to curriculum development in community colleges. Chapters 1 and 2 are an introduction and review of the study, "Curriculum Requirements for Electronic Technician Training." Chapter 3 discusses four community college electronic technology programs: Olympic College, Washington; Foothill College, California; College of San Mateo, California; and Utah Technical College. Curricula and some course descriptions are provided. Chapter 4 describes positions, job descriptions, and/or training programs at seven electronic industries that were visited. Results from a survey of the electronic technical needs of industry are provided in chapter 5 through 12 figures (charts). Chapter 6 displays results of the latter part of the survey that was designed to identify curricular (course) needs for the electronics technician. Chapter 7 then gives a recommended procedure for design of a two-year electronics curriculum. A sample general two-year electronics curriculum, based on survey results, is recommended as a model that may be added to or deleted from as appropriate. Course descriptions list topics to be covered. Appendixes include the study reviewed in chapter 2 and the survey instrument. (YLB)
