Educational Bridges to Options in High Technology Employment. Final Report.
San Diego State Univ., CA.
There are numerous examples of highly trained, capable individuals that face layoffs because of technological or economic changes that have eliminated the need for their services. This project was designed to provide a one-step opportunity for people such as these to identify opportunities in emerging technologies, to plan a retraining program, to complete courses that had been designed specifically toward their needs and scheduled during non-working hours. Technical aspects of emerging technologies rather than management aspects are emphasized. This document contains the background, course descriptions, project results, case studies, summary and conclusions from the biotechnology, physics, mathematics, and chemical and physical analysis tracks. Appendices include a schedule of the biotechnology, and advanced techniques of chemical and physical analysis learning tracks, and an information sheet to be completed by course participants. (CW)
