American Society for Engineering Education, Washington, DC.
Assessment and evaluation of the current 2- and 4-year programs in engineering technology education was the major purpose of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) in authorizing the present study. The study was implemented primarily through a series of conferences involving engineering educators, engineering technology and junior college educators, employers, personnel managers, representatives from professional societies, and knowledgeable laymen. This report of the study includes chapters concerning: (1) history, traditions, and transitions of engineering education; (2) abstracts and 3 important reports on engineering technology education since 1960; (3) recent trends in engineering education and engineering technology education; (4) goals, objectives, and broad features of engineering technology education; (5) characteristics of associate degree curricula engineering technology; (6) desirable characteristics of associate degree engineering technology curricula; (7) characteristics that differentiate between baccalaureate education in engineering, engineering technology, and industrial technology; (8) survey of current baccalaureate engineering technology programs; (9) desirable characteristics of baccalaureate engineering technology programs; (10) practical engineering versus engineering technology programs; (11) human source material for engineering technology education; and (12) assessment of strengths and weaknesses of engineering technology education.
