The Three-Two Plan "of" Engineering Education. Bulletin, 1961, No. 15. OE-56005

The three-two plan has been developed, chiefly in recent years, as one method of attacking the problem of the proper allocation of time in undergraduate engineering education between the liberal and technical subdivisions of the curriculum. The growth in the number of such programs is a clear indication that this relatively new development is serving a useful purpose in the education of engineers so greatly needed in our national economy. The U.S. Office of Education believes that this development has implications, particularly for engineering education, and perhaps in other fields, and that a brief study of this type of program is a worthwhile activity for the Office. This bulletin presents two lists of names of the institutions conducting three-two programs in the fall of 1959. In the first list, the engineering colleges are listed by geographic location, and the name of each engineering college is followed by a list of the nonengineering colleges which were collaborating with it in the conduct of these programs. This will enable anyone interested to determine quickly and easily which engineering colleges are conducting this type of program, and to ascertain for any particular engineering college which nonengineering colleges are collaborating with it.
