Ring of Iron. A Study of Engineering Education in Ontario.
Committee of Presidents of Universities of Ontario, Toronto.
At the present time, nine of the fourteen provincially-assisted universities in Ontario, Canada offer programs leading to degrees in the field of engineering, and two others offer 2-year curricula in the field. This document presents a study of engineering education in Ontario, covering both the undergraduate and graduate fields, and examining student flows, curricula, research, staff, facilities and costs with a perspective developed from an analysis of the career patterns of engineering graduates. The present report of the study is designed to be a tentative master plan that might be used as a guide for rational growth of engineering education during the coming decade. It endeavors to provide for the highest quality, the best use of resources, an opportunity for innovation, and maximum freedom of choice for students in engineering. (HS)
