Gammel, Jeanne M.; And Others
This study examines the achievements of seven graduating classes (1969 to 1975) in 12 curricula of the Division of Engineering Technology at New York City Community College (NYCCC). In all, 2,087 technology graduates were surveyed, and 922 usable responses were received (44 percent). Achievement was measured in terms of graduate activities with the following variables: present occupational status; field retention of employed graduates; proportions in senior, supervisory, managerial or professional positions; salaries; first job field retention and salaries; salary differences, change of employers and change of job titles between first and present jobs; further college attendance; further degrees sought or completed; and other variables related to employment and further education. In addition, several variables measured alumni perceptions of the NYCCC curricula such as: relationships between first and present jobs and the curricula; preparation for a career; preparation for further education; helpfulness of elective courses; whether they would recommend their curricula to their friends; citation of outstanding instructors; the effects of the economy on students' careers. Twenty-nine tables of data are presented, and the survey instrument is appended. (Author/NHM)
