Insights into Engineering Education Administration.
American Society for Engineering Education, Washington, DC.
Twelve articles that are designed to provide ideas to engineering department heads are presented. Articles and authors are as follows: "Estimating Undergraduate Student Capacity for an Engineering Department," (T. W. F. Russell, R. L. Daughtery, A. F. Graziano); "Financial Evaluation of Education Programs," (George DePuy and Ralph Swalm); "The Department Head in Facsimile," (Paul E. Torgersen and Robert E. Taylor); "Resource Allocation for a College of Engineering," (M. R. Reddy, M. B. Pashazadeh and P. H. Randolph); "An Algorithm for Forecasting University Population," (R. A. Wysk and R. P. Sadowski); "Cost and Organization in Engineering Colleges," (P. G. Kirmser, L. E. Grosh, and R. G. Nevins); "How Do Academic Administrators Spend--and Think They Spend--Their Time?" (A. E. Magana and B. W. Neibel); "Administering Engineering and Technology Programs on the Same Campus," (Victor Richley); "Planning Factors Study for Technology Education (Including Faculty Salaries)," (R. Bruce Renda); "Methods of Faculty Evaluation and Development," (Otis E. Lancaster); "A Plan to Increase and Improve Scholarship," (Arnold Allentuch); and "Almost Everything You've Ever Wanted to Know About Electrical Energy Management," (Wayne L. Stebbins). Topics include the determination of faculty course capacity and the maximum undergraduate student spaces in a department; an annual cost comparison for five methods of instructional development; an academic department head game designed for orientation and training; a survey of the administrative structures of institutions offering baccalaureate programs in engineering technology; and a method of resource allocation for a college of engineering that recognizes the need for quality and diversity of faculty.
