In an earlier writing , Dr. J. D. Forman called for "realistic and honest" efforts to assess the worth of Bachelor of Technology programs. Because of the great variety of these newly developed programs, it appears that such assessment should relate to those aspects of Bachelor of Technology programs which are common to most. It is suggested here that properly designed engineering technology programs will provide a highly credible base for an efficient learning process and that this experience can lead to advanced study. Although subsequent or more comprehensive assessments might well consider anticipated differences in the kinds of students entering the various programs, contemporary retrospect suggests that the engineering technology graduate has an advantage in transferring theoretical content to future tasks. The paper identifies valuable learning attributes of engineering technology programs, in the hope that an apprizal of this approach may eventually benefit B.S. in engineering programs.
