Engineers involved in continuing education : a survey analysis by John P Klus( Book )
3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
This work is one of a series of monographs on the improvement of engineering education. This particular study was designed to determine: (1) the extent of individual engineers' involvement in continuing education; (2) factors pertaining to job success; and (3) what relationships may exist between the two. The population surveyed included all persons with a bachelor's or higher degree in engineering who were working in an engineering area. Data were obtained by means of a questionnaire. Six factors related to an engineer's success were chosen as dependent variables: (1) years with present company; (2) present job satisfaction; (3) salary increases and promotions; (4) salary with respect to age; (5) salary with respect to job responsibilities; and (6) salary with respect to age and job responsibilities. A list of independent variables were chosen to indicate two types of continuing education: those types which can be measured by participation in programs, and other types which are highly individualized and cannot be measured by participation in programs. Chi square statistics revealed 21 significant relationships between the dependent and independent variables; these findings are discussed at length in the report. Also included are the questionnaire, accompanied by its cover letter, and complete tabulations of individual questionnaire item results. (Mlh)
Survey of continuing education activities for engineers & scientists by John P Klus( Book )
5 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 37 libraries worldwide
A study was done to provide baseline data on the continuing education opportunities that colleges, universities, and professional societies offer engineers and scientists and to determine how programs and courses are developed. Although degree credit courses were included, the focus was on noncredit education designed to increase or update professional knowledge and skills. Activities reported were intensive short courses; after-hours, noncredit courses; institutes, seminars, clinics and workshops; correspondence courses; and self-study. Approximately half the questionnaires were sent to universities and half were sent to professional and technical associations; 50.3% responded from universities and 37.6% responded from associations. In noncredit activities, there was an average of thirty-eight activities per university and twenty-four activities per association. Land-grant universities held many more activities than non-land-grant universities. In summary, it was found that more continuing education takes place through self-study than through all other activities combined. In the course development and operations segment of the survey the most often cited ideas source was "personal communications with or from industry." Of eighty-three respondents, 76% stated they did conduct needs analyses; 12% did not; 12% did, sometimes. And, regarding course evaluations, a subjective questionnaire was used very often by 57% of respondents; only 22% felt subjective questionnaires were extremely important. (Css)
