Curricula Leading to Degrees in Engineering Technology in the United States.
Engineers' Council for Professional Development, New York, NY.
In 1964, the Engineers' Council for Professional Development appointed a standing subcommittee to establish a basis for accrediting programs of technical institute type--now designated as engineering technology. Curricula in the following educational institutions were considered: technical institutes (endowed or publicly supported), junior colleges, colleges of technology, divisions of colleges and universities, and proprietary schools (operated by individuals or corporations). Curricula were evaluated both qualitatively and quantitatively. Such factors as experience of faculty members, teacher-student ratio, records of graduates, curricula offered, graduation and admission requirements, physical facilities, and financial status were considered. A list in alphabetical order of the accredited curricula leading to degrees in engineering technology in the United States in 1968 is included in the text of the report. (BC)
