The Continuing Engineering Education program at George Washington University has a somewhat unique audience;60% from government,40% from industry;60% from local area,40% from national and international sources. Although the present program has been shaped by the desires of this audience, it is now changing in accord with the maturing of Continuing Education studies in the United States. Plans are being devised for the awarding of certiflcates for the accumulation of a certain number of Continuing Education Units in related subjects, recognizing courses taken at other universities. In the long range, an optimum solution would be to use professional educators to advise individual employees of a company or agency on a comprehensive program of study. Incentives and deterrents to participation in Continuing Engineering studies are being analyzed to determine the optimum mix of courses and seminars. The University has worked with some federal government agencies to devise and present updating courses for their particular personnel who have similar backgrounds and needs.
