The opportunity for employment of displaced aerospace and defense professionals within the electric power utility industry was investigated by the Seattle Skills Conversion Project Team of the National Society of Professional Engineers, as part of a study conducted for the U.S. Department of Labor. The study concluded that a possibility for placement of 1,500 to 3,000 reoriented engineers exists within the private sector of the industry. These job opportunities appear to be those in excess of new graduate availability. The key in exploiting these opportunities is a formal course in electric power theory and practice. Related chapters are announced as VT 018 385-018 351 in this issue. (Author/AG)
