Engineering and Technology Graduates, 1973.
Alden, John D.
This report on the placement status of engineering and technology graduates in 1973 is presented on the basis of survey data obtained from registrars and placement directors of institutions in the U.S. The numbers of graduates were: 43,429 bachelor's, 16,718 master's, 434 engineer, and 3,587 doctor's degree graduates in engineering; (2) 18,316 associate degrees, 4,402 bachelor's, and 21 post-baccalaureate degrees in engineering technology; and (3) 5,004 certificates, 6,481 associate degrees, 39 post-baccalaureate degrees, and 2,076 bachelor's in industrial technology. Analyses are made in connection with placement status at each degree level, major curricula of different job climate, expected graduate shortage, student trends in schools accredited by the Engineers' Council for Professional Development (ECPD schools) and non-accredited schools, starting salaries, and chronological comparison. Job prospects for next year's graduates are reported as good. Graduates of ECPD schools are more likely to continue further study in comparison with non-ECPD school graduates. The strength of the observed demand decreases gradually from bachelor's in engineering to older alumni through bachelor's of engineering technology, associates in technology, master's in engineering, and bachelor's of industrial technology. The lowest group is PhD's. Women graduates average slightly higher salary offers than men at the BS degree level. Blacks and other minority graduates are characterized as in very strong demand. Also included are statistical tables of varying-degree graduates versus institutions and curricula. (CC)
