Prospects of Engineering and Technology Graduates. 1975.
Engineers Joint Council, New York, NY. Engineering Manpower Commission.
Statistics are presented regarding the employment situation for engineers during the school year ending in 1975. The overall findings reflect the state of the national economy with a depressed job market. The major changes in this year's placement status of engineering and technology graduates at all degree levels were a large reduction in the percentage entering employment, only slightly offset by a small increase in those going on to full-time study. Changes in the numbers entering military service, having other firm plans, or still considering job offers were significant. The result was a large increase in the proportion of graduates without job offers or other plans. Although 1975 was one of the poorest employment years engineering graduates have experienced in recent times, the picture looks more favorable when viewed in the context of other occupations and educational curricula.
