^Visiting Engineers Conduct Panels May 17-26 Friday, May 17, 1968 THE BATTALION College Station, Texas Page 3 ✓ 1 i J Involve the student of engineer ing in a practical design project and make available to him the guidance and inspiration of the experienced professional engineer from industry. This is the concept of the Visit ing Engineer Program of Texas A&M’s College of Engineering. In teams of three, the visiting professionals are serving May 16-24 i. s panels to review the final presentations of student teams whp have been working on assignee^ design problems for the past three months. Dr. Jim Earle of the Depart ment of Engineering Graphics said the 640 students enrolled in Engineering Graphics 106 were divided into teams of five or six to begin project work February 12. Visiting engineers came to classes to consult with their pro teges March 11-15. TEAMS COMPLETED THEIR projects April 30 and began pre paring formal presentations. This week’s oral reports, in which the students expose their ideas to ex pert scrutiny, using graphic aids « and models, is the culmination of the entire program, Earle said. Each team worked on one of the following: an elevator to im prove access to and from an off shore drilling platform, a device to enable a workman to install 4’x8’ panels without assistance, an apparatus to enable a wheel chair patient to bathe unaided, or a television base which permits raising, lowering, and tilting. THE VISITING Engineer Pro gram was initiated last year and has already brought 132 engineers to the campus, according to re ports of the Engineering Gra phics faculty, who serve as hosts and advisors. The visitors tour such campus facilities as the Cy clotron, Nuclear Science Center, Data Processing Center, and the Teague Space Research Center. Engineering educators are con cerned that schools of engineering will be graduating about 30,000 fewer engineers each year in the 1970’s than will be needed by American industry. Assistant Dean C. H. Ransdell points to the Visiting Engineer Program as a part of a concerted effort by the College of Engineering to bring students into the field and to keep them motivated. Some of the designs show qual ity which would be highly re spected in industry, Ransdell maintains. Schedule for the panelists in cludes: MAY 20 — J. H. Blackaller, H. B.
