Even though a considerable expansion of technician training has taken place during the past five years, it is doubtful whether the nation will be able to meet the projected need unless the rate of increase in training facilities are accelerated.

With the fast changing world of today, there is a need for a large number of well-trained technicians. This has created a need for well-developed technology programs. These programs should keep abreast of the rapid changes in industry. In order to keep abreast, periodical evaluations of industrial technology programs are advisable.

"To understand our culture in America we must understand technology because it is our culture. To understand what has made America great, we must search technology. To understand what will keep America great, we must study technology.

In the past few years, the enrollment in Industrial Technology at Prairie View A. and M. College has increased tremendously. To provide these students with the best available experiences and training, a study of Industrial Technology curriculums was needed. The purpose of the study was to compare the Industrial Technology program at Prairie View A. and M. College with other similar programs.

This study may prove helpful to the Industrial Technology Division at Prairie View A. & M. College. This study has shown small differences and basic similarities between the fifty selected programs and Prairie View's program which could be considered as a competitive Industrial Technology Program.
