A Guide for Planning Drafting and Design Technology Programs. Section I, II.
Guerard, Michael P.; And Others
This guide is the result of a consolidation of three separate, closely related dissertation studies designed to provide information for preparing a planning guide for drafting and design technology programs. One of the studies was of the Texas Junior College drafting and design curricula, another was of the buildings and equipment, and the third used an industrial survey to determine criteria for a program guide. The assumptions for formulating the suggested curriculum were that: (1) the course of study should be for students wishing to pursue a particular vocation, (2) the occupational needs of students are generated by employers, (3) the classification of occupations implies common knowledge and skill, (4) some occupations require unique knowledges and skills, (5) duplication of subject matter should be minimized, and (6) adequate equipment and facilities are necessary. The surveys of junior colleges were confined to those colleges with associate degree programs, and the industrial concerns were stratified according to areas of specialization, volume of employment, and regional location. The planning guide section of this document includes: (1) enrollment estimation, (2) suggested course of study, course outlines, and descriptions, (3) personal requirements, and (4) facilities and equipment. The data collection and analysis and the appendixes are available as VT 014 406 and VT 014 408 respectively. (GEB)
