New knowledge and advances in materials-science technology and other fields impacts on the lives and work of many engineers. An important system for assimilating this new knowledge is through continuing education programs for engineers. The ideal program contains the means for identifying the new knowledge and developments that are relevant, the educational needs of the engineers and how best to satisfy them, and feedback loops for evaluating the effectiveness of the program. Western Electric is deeply committed to continuing the education of its engineers. At its Corporate Education Center near Princeton, N. J., engineers participate in courses on a multitude of subjects. Here, too, the Western Electric-Lehigh University Fellowship Program is administered. One option in this program leads to a Master of Science in materials science. Smaller companies may find that on-campus university programs or part-time programs presented on the company premises are more adaptable to their needs.
