Opportunities in Science and Engineering. A Chartbook Presentation.
Vetter, Betty M.
Provided in this document are full-page charts (with accompanying text) for use in a basic presentation on present and projected career and employment opportunities in the various fields of science and engineering. The material is designed for college students and individuals planning to re-enter the labor market in science or engineering, as well as for policy makers, science teachers, placement specialists, counselors, and other advisors of students. The charts, which may be photocopied as transparencies or handouts or photographed for slides, are organized into four major sections: supply of scientists and engineers (6 charts); demand for scientists and engineers (13 charts); future supply of and demand for scientists and engineers (12 charts); and summary and conclusions (5 charts). In addition, 22 data tables are included in an appendix. Although the information included in the charts emphasizes the growing participation of and opportunities for women in science and engineering fields, it is equally relevant for mixed groups. Any segments may be omitted as desired by a speaker, to fit particular audiences, and additional information may be added in any field by utilizing the appendix tables. (JN)
