Salaries of Engineering Technicians and Technologists, 1975. Detailed Industry Report.
Engineers Joint Council, New York, NY. Engineering Manpower Commission.
The survey is the fifth in a series covering the salaries of engineering technicians, conducted biennially since 1969. The format for salary presentations is maturity curves in which salary is plotted as a function of years of experience, accompanied by the data tables from which the curves were plotted. The survey covers three groups of personnel under the general category of engineering technicians: (1) graduates of two-year college-level programs leading to an associate degree in technology, (2) non-graduates qualified to perform the same kind of work on the basis of equivalent education and experiences, and (3) graduates of four-year bachelor of technology programs. The first two groups are distinguished between in some of the data tables. Bachelor of technology graduates are called "technologists" and are reported separately. The survey does not attempt to establish salary standards for any industry or employee group; the curves simply show what various sectors of employment were paying as of August 1975. A three-part questionnaire was used (facsimile appended) on which respondents indicated the number of individuals in appropriate boxes of a salary-versus-experience matrix, and the report is based on returns submitted by 630 different establishments employing 61,537 technicians.
