    The Long Island Section of the IRE has attempted to attack the problem of cooperation with the secondary schools in its region in two ways. The first is to supply technical support to the high-school science teacher by direct contact with the student in areas where rapid scientific advances have made specialist knowledge a requirement. The second is towards the provision of a lecture series specif... View full abstract»

    With few exceptions, companies in the electronics industry sponsor advanced education. They derive many benefits from the sponsorship of these programs, such as keeping their engineering staffs up to date on new technical advances, increasing the staff prestige, and attracting outstanding engineering graduates. Industry and Education must provide better advanced education in industry if we are to ... View full abstract»

    Some sort of reportorial process is necessary for evaluation of undergraduate laboratory work. A variety of methods currently employed are not entirely satisfactory. Ideally, such a process should accomplish its purpose with a minimum expenditure of time and effort and, wherever possible, enhance the educational efficiency of the laboratory. Under certain conditions, verbal communication may be em... View full abstract»

    The demand for greater numbers of technically-trained personnel, along with the scientific sophistication needed to meet tomorrow's need for new technologies, indicate that we must take a new look at our present criteria for the selection of engineers for employment. Criteria must be more basic than the mere evaluation of personality, grades and interests. This fact suggests the necessity to redef... View full abstract»

    Ability, motivation, work challenges, and environment├é┬┐these things set the pattern for a successful engineering career. One company, through a personal approach, is endeavoring to develop a better understanding of these factors in order to assist its young engineers in fulfilling their true potential. It is expected that this "Personal Follow" program will result, ultimately, in more effective ut... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this paper is to state what the author believes is a good way to develop the powers of understanding of talented college science students. After making a careful and somewhat novel distinction between knowledge and understanding, the paper closely defines the main problem in terms of the new interpretation of "understanding." A short discussion follows which concludes that what is n... View full abstract»

    A number of internal and external pressures bear down on engineering colleges today. These include the shortage of experienced manpower, the rapid rate of scientific discoveries requiring absorption in curricula, the increasing college population, competition by industry for faculty members, and the need for additional income for plant expansion and faculty salaries. Within the body of engineering... View full abstract»

    This study tests several hypotheses concerning the effects that family structure has on an individual's personality development and its influence on his success in a science or engineering curriculum. One of the principal ideas tested is that success in college in science or engineering requires that the student develop strong feelings of independence and consequently be free from over-concern wit...

    Known learning principles cannot be efficiently applied in the traditional classroom environment. To achieve efficient learning it is necessary to remold the teaching-learning configuration to one in which the state of the art can be applied. Teaching machines provide such a configuration, and have proved to be dramatically effective in teaching a wide variety of subject matters. There is a need f... View full abstract»

    The reduction in time between the discovery of new knowledge and its application to fill human needs has demanded rapid sophistication of engineering and science graduates employed by industry. In a very short time an integrated work-graduate study program provides these graduates with education in depth, an introduction to industry and a realistic base upon which to make a career decision. Indust... View full abstract»
