To provide a method for graduate engineers to acquire advanced degrees, some industrial organizations have instituted a part-time employee program. The difficulties encountered by an industry, an employee and an educational institution which have been involved in such a program are indicated in this paper. Suggestions are made, which should improve the benefits derived from such a program. Since programs of this type will provide a better qualified technical force for industry and the nation, they deserve the attention of educators at this time. Greater cooperation between industry and educational institutions will provide a benefit to all.
