Description:

In a paper written by Dan Hull, Gary Beasley, Greg Kepner, Chrys Panayiotou, and John Souders, the recent decline in technology program enrollment is investigated and a few explanations are offered. This paper is provided by The National Center for Optics and Photonics Education (Op-Tec). It discusses some reasons behind the decline and its affects on two-year technical colleges as well as some suggestions for reversing said effect. “Revitalizing Electronics Engineering Technology Programs Through a Core Curriculum Structure and Emerging Technologies” offers basic curriculum with a core in electronics to encourage emerging technology specialty options. Ways to implement this model are also included. Overall, this is a priceless resource for community colleges already noticing a decline in their numbers or for those who want to prevent it. This 11-page PDF could be the key for your institution to succeed in technology programs.
