Session 2

Session 2: The Engineering Technology Value Proposition for Students, Business & Industry, and Academic Institutions
For the last several months the Engineering Technology National Forum committee has been working to develop a value proposition that portrays in succinct yet comprehensive fashion the value of engineering technology programs to all of its constituents, i.e., its prospective students, potential employers of its graduates, and the value it adds to those institutions that offer them. A draft of that proposition will be presented and used as a basis of an open discussion of its content and effectiveness, and ways to improve it.

Moderators:
Professor Ron Land, Associate Professor, College of Engineering, System-wide Coordinator, Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology, Penn State University, and Dr. Ken Burbank, Chair of Engineering Technology Council (ETC), and Head, School of Engineering Technology, Purdue Polytechnic Institute.

Session 3

Session 3: Best Practices in Engineering Technology
This session will focus on best practices in the engineering technology programs that can be replicated at other institutions. Proposals for best practices have been requested from the engineering technology community and several were chosen for presentation in a panel format. Small discussion groups were formed after the presentations for participants to ask the presenters questions about their best practice.

Moderators:
Professor Carol Richardson, Professor Emeritus, College of Applied Science and Technology, Rochester Institute of Technology and Professor Maureen Valentine, Professor, College of Applied Science and Technology, Rochester Institute of Technology.

3:30pm - 5:00pm
