An Overview of Recent Studies in Junior College Electrical-Electronics Curriculum.
Williams, Harry E.
This brief paper discusses in some detail several recent studies of electrical-electronics curricula at the junior college level and presents a 22-item bibliography of studies in this area. Comments based on the findings of the studies include: (1) A method of instruction, particulary applicable to the field of electronics education, seems to be that each course in such a curriculum can be broken down into a list of required objectives, which is further enhanced for the student by the close coordination required with industry to obtain a detailed objectives list for an entire curriculum, (2) Circuit analysis and basic electronics should be part of the first year curriculum, (3) A core studies program in electronics can be developed, (4) The trend is toward hybrid technologies. The paper indicates more research is needed to ascertain emerging technologies which may require new course developments. Bibliographies, suggested curricula, and charts are included. (NH)
