A questionnaire survey of approximately 870 schools provided enrollment data on technology students. Data are presented in tabular form for curriculum, type of school, and four categories of students--(1) engineering, all degree levels, (2) technology, terminal associate degree level, (3) technology, bachelor's degree level, and (4) pre-engineering, transfer programs. Enrollment data from 180 schools having curriculums approved by the Engineers Council for Professional Development showed these trends since 1965--(1) freshmen enrollments down 4 percent from 67,376 to 64,583, (2) second-year enrollments up 5 percent from 46,325 to 48,640, (3) third-through fifth-year enrollments up 15 percent from 76,823 to 88,371, (4) master's level enrollments up 84 percent, and (5) doctoral level enrollments up 59 percent. Technician enrollment data from 512 schools showed there were 102,000 full time students in associate degree and certificate programs, and 59 schools reported 104,000 students in bachelor of technology programs. The enrollment data are presented in 382 tables, and schools are listed by state with the kinds of curriculums for each school indicated. (EM)
