Marine Technology Programs: Where We Are and Where We're Going.
Gillie, Angelo C.; Pratt, Arden L.
This report synthesizes and summarizes the presentations and discussion at the 1970 Conference on Training of Marine Technicians in the Junior Colleges. These issues relating to marine technology education are considered: how valid manpower predictions can be translated into meaningful program development; how involvement between potential employers and educators make possible successful programs; aspects of curriculum development in marine technology; facilities and equipment, especially the training vessel (boat); the problems associated with the recruitment and retention of students; and faculty and administrators. The appendix contains a list of the 21 institutions represented at the conference, each of which offers at least one program related to marine technology with an associate of arts degree. A description of each of these programs is provided. In addition, the appendix lists the participants at the conference and also lists over 90 positions for marine technicians. (PR)
