Science and Engineering Technology: A Guide to a Two-Year Associate Degree Curriculum.
Wolf, Lawrence J.
The Science and Engineering Technician (SET) Curriculum is a two-year post-secondary curriculum designed to prepare technicians to use the electronic instruments which became available in the early 1970's as a result of advances in different fields of electronics. It is an interdisciplinary program of study which integrates elements from the disciplines of chemistry, physics, mathematics, mechanical technology, and electronics technology, with a special skill focus on electronics instrumentation. This guide provides an overview of the project. It includes the following: (1) an assessment of the needs of the students, employers, and transfer institutions which are met by the SET Curriculum; (2) an outline of the sequence of courses in the curriculum; (3) a list of study guides prepared for these courses; and (4) sources of other relevant instructional materials. Case studies of individual students describe experiences with the curriculum and provide follow-up information after graduation. Other case studies of trial implementations focus on information useful to colleges considering use of the SET Curriculum. (Author/SK)
