Education for the Manufacturing World of the Future. Series on Technology and Social Priorities Symposium (1st, Washington, D.C., September 20-21, 1984).
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC.
Perspectives on issues affecting manufacturing enterprises are given by educators and industrial planners and managers in this symposium report. The symposium was designed to bring together industrial manufacturing companies and the universities which are responsible for educating those who will plan and operate manufacturing systems. Working groups were formed to identify issues and recommend actions for those in the public and private sectors responsible for ensuring the match between educational institutions and the needs of industry. The symposium's presentations and papers are organized in the report in three sections. These include: (1) papers (examining the engineer, the changed face of manufacturing and education and industrial needs); (2) a panel discussion (containing presentations on corporate attitudes toward introducing new manufacturing technology); and (3) working group reports (addressing concerns in structuring the manufacturing education system, industry-university cooperation in education and research, manufacturing careers and priorities in manufacturing education). Appendices include a register of symposium participants, a selected bibliography and a statement of the purpose of the symposium. (ML)
