Master Plan for the Introduction of High Technology Instructional Programs. Office of Instruction Report No. 82-1.
Los Angeles Trade-Technical Coll., CA.
This plan for the introduction of high technology instructional programs at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College was designed to help the college meet the staffing needs of local companies for technicians trained in high technology fields. After an introductory discussion of the changing nature of the labor market and its impact on college programs, Chapter I presents an instructional model for high technology programs which includes curriculum programs, programs for foreign students, pre-high-tech programs, instructional contracts, weekend college, and after-school enrichment programs for junior and senior high school students. Special focus is placed on plans for developing a School of Science, Engineering, and Technology, a Computer Center, and a High Technology College Advisory Committee. Chapters II through V present course descriptions, budget projections, and other information on four new programs: High Technology Associate in Science Degree Programs; an Electrical Engineering Technician Technology Program; a Machine Shop Computer-Assisted Manufacturing Technician Technology Program; and a Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing Technician Technology Program. Finally, chapter VI explains the support role to be taken by the college's Science-Math Department in the implementation of the high technology program, summarizes the currently offered associate in science degree programs, and lists pre-tech and industry training modules.
