Tapping a Neglected Market for Nontraditional Students: Continuing Education for Engineers.
Stewart, Lea P.
Designed to aid speech communication educators who want to attract engineers and engineering students to their classes, this paper provides a brief profile of the engineering profession and the engineering professional, proposes courses to meet the needs of these students, and offers some suggestions on how to adapt the speech communication classroom to the predispositions these students bring with them to the speech communication classroom. The paper notes that the engineering profession has become aware of the need for engineers to be able to manage people and projects, and that participating in courses offered by speech communication departments would help to accomplish this goal.
