Photoinstrumentation Technology, A Two-Year Program.
Bates, O. G.
The purpose of the Photoinstrumentation Technology Program is to train technicians in creative design and implementation of high-speed and other scientific photographic recordings. The curriculum was designed to provide technicians without the A.S. degree with the opportunity to acquire the educational background necessary for salary advance and the assignement of higher level work. The curriculum is also designed to meet the specifications of the Engineer's Council for Professional Development and is geared toward individualized instruction. It is an engineering technology curriculum in the sense that it initiates specialized technical courses early in the program. The program report deals with mathematics and physical sciences, nontechnical courses, technical skills, technical specialties, laboratories, and library. It surveys existing curricula, and explains the curriculum design and how the courses will be presented. There are four appendixes: background of photoinstrumentation technology curriculum, survey of instruments used by photoinstrumentation technicians, major instructional objectives of the curriculum, and laboratory report form. Four tables in the text list a curriculum summary in terms of semester credits, the photoinstrumentation curriculum at Milwaukee Area Technical College, a survey of instruments with 50 percent or higher frequency of use, and photoinstrumentation technology courses.
