PDD--Innovation in Post Bachelor Education.
Soltis, Lawrence A.
A description of the University of Wisconsin's Professional Development Degree (PDD) program, a post-baccalaureate degree program designed to bring various opportunities for learning to the practicing engineer, is provided. The primary objectives of the program are: (1) to expose the professional to subjects necessary to combat obsolescence, (2) to keep abreast of the latest techniques in one's field, and (3) to assist the engineer in assuming changing job responsibilities. Developed as a continuing education program, the PDD program requires a bachelor's degree for admission, but no minimum grade point average. No residence requirements must be fulfilled, hence some program participants meet program requirements via correspondence. The small quantity of required courses in the program allows participants considerable latitude in pursuing personal choices in their respective technical course selections. The development, prerequisites, and description of the PDD program are provided, along with a survey of current and past participants in the program. (CP)
