Engineering Manpower and Engineering Education in New York State: A Report and Recommendations for Action.
Diamond, Celia B.
Data related to current and recent engineering manpower demand, engineering degrees and enrollments, supply and demand projections for engineering manpower, and results of an April 1982 survey of New York's engineering schools are presented and discussed in separate sections of this report. Based on these data, nine recommendations for the future of engineering education in New York State are made. These recommendations address both questions of quantity and quality in engineering programs. A summary (highlighting the data and listing the nine recommendations) and detailed lists of figures and tables are included at the beginning of the report. Recommendations include expanding capacity in undergraduate engineering education; expanding opportunities for part-time graduate education for employed engineers; encouraging industry/university cooperation to alleviate faculty shortage and the problem of obsolete equipment in universities; increasing the number and financial stipends of teaching assistantships; establishing graduate fellowships; funding Centers for Advanced Technology (described in Regents 1982 Legislative Proposals); authorizing equipment acquisition grants and determining dimensions of need for additional instructional/research equipment; and continuing every effort to ensure quality engineering programs in New York.
