An Appraisal of the Status and Future of the Continuing Education (Non-Credit) for Engineers in the United States.
Frasher, Richard Dempsey
The current status of noncredit continuing engineering education is described and criticized to facilitate the planning of future activity in this field. First, in a review of the background and current nature of continuing education in general, it is shown that rapid technological change makes periodic continuing education imperative for engineers. Pertinent findings of the Joint Advisory Committee on Continuing Engineering studies, and its recommendations for future action by universities, industry, technical societies, and the Federal government, are cited. In addition, continuing education in the fields of commerce and medicine is briefly reviewed and assessed. It is concluded that future emphasis should be directed toward organization and program development at the local rather than national level, under the direction of local planning groups. Ultimate responsibility should rest with the engineering societies. (Author/ly)
