The primary purpose of this conference held in Washington, May 1 and 2, 1922, was to promote through training better coordination of the major operations in industry and commerce. There was an attendance of 215 comprising largely business executives, engineers, and professors of business and engineering. The topics of discussion related to the coordination of college training with the industrial demand, to civic and social training of the engineer and business, and to the training of the engineer for management of overseas engineering projects. The committee hoped that the discussion of these topics might: (1) help solve the new problems that have recently arisen in modern industries, the solution of which demands a more scientific approach to include job analysis and personnel specifications and a translation of these into a new and teachable content for use in engineering and commerce schools; and (2) might assist the engineer to a better understanding of problems relating to community development and aid in the training of the engineer for management of Overseas engineering projects. Committee on Commercial Engineering is appended. [Footnotes were unable to be counted due to poor print quality. Best copy available has been provided.]
