Energy-Related Technology Programs in Community and Junior Colleges: An Analysis of Existing and Planned Programs.
Doggette, John R.
This study was conducted to provide a basis for planning for needed energy-related occupational technology programs in two-year educational institutions. A questionnaire was sent to 1,152 junior, community, and technical colleges in fall 1975; 774 (67%) responded. The survey identified 62 existing one- and two-year energy-related programs and 132 planned programs, and found that public institutions are significantly more involved in energy-related technology than are private institutions. This document reports on: (1) the number of existing and planned programs in petroleum technology, coal-mining technology, nuclear energy technology, solar energy technology, laser-optics technology, geothermal energy technology, alternative energy sources, energy conservation, and electrical energy technology; (2) the number of such programs in various geographical areas and at various kinds of institutions; (3) the current and anticipated enrollments in such programs; (4) the number of students who have already graduated from such programs; (5) the degree and type of cooperation between the colleges and energy industries; and (6) the degree of college interest in attending a working conference to assess occupational needs in energy areas. A description of the research methodology is included, as are the survey instrument and a list of the institutions having existing energy programs. (DC)
