    Considering continuing education in its broadest sense, the IEEE has provided a wide variety of learning experiences since its founding in 1884. Indeed, the type and number of offerings has become so diffuse as to cause a "masking" effect to develop conceming its educational role over the years. While continuing to provide a plethora of educational material, the IEEE in recent years has attempted ... View full abstract»

    The role of a proprietary school like McGraw-Hill will be defined as a purveyor of education in electronics engineering by means of home study. The advantages of home study education with respect to a student having the choice of studying when he wants to, where he wants to, and at what rate will be described. The history of U. S. home study education and its viability when compared in a research ... View full abstract»

    One of the most often overlooked opportunities for improving the profitability of a manufacturing business is the development of the professional (exempt) personnel assigned to the manufacturing function. Decisions made in manufacturing, many at relatively low levels in the organizational hierarchy, will often appear to be routine but in reality have substantial impact on the present and future st...

    The problem is to identify the existing and prospective components and systems of instructional media in order to match the needs of continuing education. A general statement of need relative to continuing studies in engineering education was expressed four years ago in the Journal of Engineering Education (58: 367-446, 1968). It was recommended that increased attention be paid to strengthening fu... View full abstract»

    For the past 4 years, the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) has conducted a program for training unskilled personnel into technical fields at the technician level. In common with many such programs, the SLAC effort is divided into two parts: 1) on-the-job practical experience, and 2) correlated academic studies. The SLAC approach to the second part, academic studies, is somewhat unique. SL... View full abstract»
