An associate degree in genealogy can be earned by following the outlined
two-year plan. For a description of the courses offered, as well as information
on the baccalaureate degree which can be obtained, see the section entitled
Genealogy. This program will prepare the student to accredit in New England
or Middle Atlantic states and the South, with emphasis on their English back-
ground. Other possible options could include classes in preparation for accredi-
tation in the Midwestern states, English, Scottish, or Scandinavian research.

Technical Specialties in the Industrial Area

Supervisor: Ross J. McArthur

Our present industrial and technological economy requires industrial tech-
nicians as well as engineering technicians. Industrial technicians serve the in-
dustrial occupations in a manner similar to the way engineering technicians serve
the engineering occupations.

Industrial technicians assist with technical details in industrial occupations.
They use tools, instruments, and/or special devices to design, illustrate, fabricate,
maintain, operate, and test objects, materials, or equipment; examine and evaluate
plans, designs, and data; interpret work procedures; and maintain harmonious
relationships among groups of workers.

To meet the need for trained industrial technicians for industry, the following
curricula are provided:

Graphic Arts Technician

Supervisor: Ron H. Jenkins

Printing is one of the major industries in our country today. It is vital to
business and industrial organizations, civic and community organizations, and


to the social, political, and economic life of our nation. Because of increasingly
complex mechanized printing equipment in use today, there is a growing need
for technically trained personnel in all areas of printing production and manage-
ment. The graphic arts technician program, leading to the associate degree,
prepares students for work in printing and publishing industries, governmented
agencies, manufacturers of paper products, and private firms that do their own

Light Building Construction Technician

Adviser: Ross J. McArthur

This associate-degree program is designed to prepare students to become
successful building construction technicians. These technicians are trained in the
construction of residential homes and small buildings, where new construction
techniques and materials have made radical changes in the last decade. Initial
employment for building construction technicians can be obtained as assistants
to foremen and supervisors or as helpers to contractors and building specialists.
Successful experience in this field leads to many opportunities, the more common
of which include positions as building contractors, supervisors, estimators, in-
spectors, consultants, company managers, appraisers, and building materials

Welding Technician

Adviser: Lester Long

This program offers comprehensive training for the preparation of welding tech-
nicians for industry. It consists of theory and practice in oxy-acetylene, electric
arc, resistance, Heliarc, and submerged arc welding. In addition, the program
provides training in machine tool processes, metsdlurgy, technical drawing, and
related general education.

With the emphasis on prefabrication, and with the rapid changes occurring in
industry, welding has become very technical, requiring the service of individuals
with training beyond that of the craftsman. Some of the opportunities available
to the welding technician are welding foreman, leadman, supervisor, analyzer,
inspector, research specialist, and welding equipment salesman.

Associate-Degree Program in Law Enforcement

Supervisor: Charles T. Fletcher

This associate-degree program prepares students for law enforcement posi-
tions with federal, state, local, industrial-institutional agencies, and security
sections. The program is designed to produce law enforcement personnel who
possess an understanding of the forces at work in society, skill in human rela-
tions, and the ability to adapt to the rapid changes of modern living. In addition
to the associate level, a degree is also offered in law enforcement at the bachelor's
level. Those qualifying for an associate degree may either enter the law enforce-
ment field or continue their education toward the higher degree.

Library Technician

Supervisor: Keith M. Cottam

Many positions in modern-day libraries can best be filled by library tech-
nicians. These positions occur in circulation work, filing, cataloging, work with
bibliographies, and reference work. Students completing the library technician
program are prepared to work in public, college, university, and industrial
libraries, and in specialized research and information centers. Also, there is a
trend toward adding library technicians to the school library staff and using
trained people to work as media specialist assistants. The shortage of librarisins
is critical and likely to remain so for some time. To meet the need for library
technicians, the following associate-degree curriculum is provided.

Associate-Degree Program in Nursing

LDS Health Service Center, 401 12th Avenue, Salt Lake City, Utah 84103

The two-year curriculum is based upon a philosophy of education for service
in the field of technical nursing. This program prepares graduates to take the


State Board Test Pool Examination for licensure in Utah as registered nurses
(R.N.) and to give direct bedside care to patients.

The associate-degree program in nursing is uniting with the baccalaureate-de-
gree program to provide a ladder-concept curriculum pattern wherein nurses
may first obtain an associate degree and then progress to the Bachelor of
Science degree.

In September 1972 no beginning students will be admitted to the old cur-
riculum pattern of the associate-degree program in nursing; instead, students
will be admitted to the College of Nursing and follow the new curriculum pat-
tern. Prior to admittance to the nursing courses, candidates are required to ar-
range for a personal interview with the director of the associate-degree program
in Salt Lake City or the dean of the College of Nursing in Provo. Transfer
students who have been accepted by the University must also be approved by
the Admissions and Standings Committee of the College of Nursing.

In September 1972 only nursing students who are completing their second
year will be admitted through the College of Industrial and Technical Educa-
tion into the associate-degree program in nursing.

Professor: McArthur (Chairman, 230 SNLB).

Associate Professor: Mortensen.

Assistant Professors: Allen, Brown, Simmons, Smart, Tolman, Whited.

Instructors: Kohkonen, Kunzler, Long, Raiser.

The Technology Department offers baccalaureate degrees in engineering technology
(design and computer graphics, electronics, manufacturing) and industrial tech-
nology (building construction and physical plant administration). Associate-
degree technician programs are offered in drafting, graphic arts, light building
construction, material science, and welding.

Two different types of courses are offered in order to meet the needs of two
distinct groups of students: (1) introductory courses for those students desiring
a greater understanding of the industrial and technical activity in the world
today; and (2) technical courses for those students who wish to prepare for
entrance into industrial and technical occupations.

These programs are designed to develop successful and productive citizens and
a constructive philosophy of life. To receive maximum benefit in minimum time,
students should contact the department chairman and be assigned an adviser
who will assist them in working out a program of studies.

The baccalaureate degree programs in engineering technology and industrial
technology are shown in this section. The associate-degree technician programs
are listed in the Technical Institute section of this catalog.

Engineering Technology
Design and Computer Graphics

(Accredited by the Engineers' Council for Professional Development)

Design and computer graphics is a four-year program leading to the Bachelor
of Science degree in technology. This program is fully certified by the American
Institute for Design and Drafting (AIDD) and accredited by the Engineers'
Council for Professional Development (ECPD).

When compared with the more traditional subjects, design and computer
graphics is a relatively new area which has emerged from the extensive use of
computers in the industrial environment, and graduates of this program are pre-
pared for various opportunities in the expanding field of automated graphics and
computer-assisted design techniques.

Through exposure to the complex problems related to automation — both in
design and manufacturing technology — graduates are qualified to become lead
men, designers, or engineering graphics supervisors in conventional as well as
automated facilities.
