The emergence and growth in engineering technology (ET) degrees is due to these factors: (1) America’s desire to maintain its preeminence as a leader in technology and innovation; (2) a series of engineering education reports; (3) the development of technical institutes; (4) the expansion of the junior and community college programs in technical education; and (5) the movement of U.S. engineering education toward curricula that emphasize science knowledge and theory and advanced mathematics. The convergence of the first three factors provided the impetus for the creation of the 2-year ET programs that exist and when adding in the last two factors 4 year ET programs were created.
Lester Su, Ph.D., Chair of the ASME Committee on Government Relations, moderated the session and was joined by Noël Bakhtian, Ph.D., who served as a 2016 ASME Foundation Swanson Fellow at the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy in the environment and energy division and Said Jahanmir, Ph.D. who is currently serving as a 2015-16 ASME Congressional Fellow for the Honorable Tim Ryan (D-OH).
