Using Revised DACUM and Survey To Determine Electronic Engineering Technology Curriculum.
A study was conducted to determine a relevant curriculum for the electronic engineering technology programs of junior colleges in Taiwan that would meet workplace demand. Using a revised DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) technique, a duty-task profile of electronic technicians, which contained 12 duties and 73 tasks, was first constructed. Based on the profile, a list of professional subjects for the two-year junior colleges' electronic engineering program, composed of 26 subjects, was developed by a curriculum development team of electronic engineering technology program faculty. The list was sent to 29 two-year junior colleges that had electronic engineering programs. Four electronic engineering program faculty in each of those 29 colleges were requested to determine whether each subject listed should be either required or optional, or both, and the appropriateness of both credit- and time-allocation of each subject. The result of the study was a relevant curriculum that should help students in two-year electronic engineering programs of junior colleges meet employers' demands. (Contains 15 references.)
