Educational Challenges for Engineering. Keynote Address, Engineering in the Service of Society: New Educational Programs. IEEE Workshop Record (University of Kentucky, Lexington, August 26-27, 1974).
Truxal, John G.
Cited are the educational challenges of undergraduate, graduate, and professional engineering programs; the main emphasis is on the challente to provide engineering education for non-engineering students at both the undergraduate and adult levels. The need for such a program stems from a conviction that no citizen can be considered educated in today's "age of technology" without at least minimal literacy in the sciences and applied sciences. A program for technological literacy at the State University of New York at Stony Brook is described. At Stony Brook, a series of courses specifically for non-engineering majors has been developed. An attempt to develop materials to foster technological literacy in secondary schools is also described. (CP)
