High Tech. High Technology in Vocational Education. Training Programs for Emerging Occupations.
Rodenstein, Judith, Ed.
This publication represents the collaborative efforts of vocational educators who are involved in the planning and teaching of high technology training programs. It contains a series of reports and profiles which illustrate the diversity of high technology programs in vocational education institutions and the variety of approaches that can be used to train workers for high technology related occupations. Twenty-seven institutions that offer high technology training programs are listed, and each profile begins with the name of the program, address, telephone number, contact person, degree granted, and the year the program began. Also included are the history of the program, role of the advisory committee, the curriculum, equipment needed for the program, and faculty and placement information. Eight occupational clusters are represented: (1) biomedical (3 programs); (2) laser technology (1 program); (3) telecommunications (2 programs); (4) manufacturing and servicing technology (7 programs); (5) computer-assisted design/drafting (CAD) (4 programs); (6) computer numerical control (CNC) (2 programs); (7) robotics (4 programs); and (8) information processing (1 program). Additional miscellaneous programs described include technical writing, precision inspection, and non-destructive examination. Appendices provide information on programs impacted by technology and high technology, existing high technology programs in vocational education listed by program area and state, and a glossary of robotics terminology.
