Industrial Education Top: Jimmy Kuykendall trims down a piece ot metal. Bottom: A student works on a drafting project. Right: Lisa Dunlap hammers down a board. A program on the wa uj An increase in the number of majors and the hiring oftwo new faculty members were among some of the changes in the industrial education department. The department was one of the few private institutions that offered a four-year degree program in technology education. The industrial education department awarded two types of bachelor's degrees and also an associate degree. The department emphasized training in technology with classes covering the areas of drafting, graphic arts, photography and computer graphics. Continuing advances in technology and engineering and greater employment opportunity in those areas were the main reasons for the increase in industrial education majors, according to Dr.jerry Drennan, chairman ofthe department. More than 100 students chose industrial education as a major in 1982-83. "The technology fields have become such a priority area in society, more students are choosing to study those subjects," said Drennan. Drennan went on to point out that over the last five years ACU's total enrollment has increased approximately 1.7 p cent while enrollment in the industrial education departmc has increased almost 30 percent. That rapid growth was t cause for hiring two new instructors. james Cooke, who received a master of science degree industrial education from North Texas State University, vs hired to teach metals, power, woodworking and other pi fessional classes. Cooke previously taught at Western St: College of Colorado and in the Hurst, Euless, Bedford a Denton public school systems. Dr. Delbert Towell came to ACU from Western Kc tucky State University. Towell received his master of arts industrial education from Oregon State University and I doctorate from Texas A8cM. He taught visual communii tions and drafting at ACU and had previously taught in t California public school systems. "I particularly enjoy teaching at ACU," Towell sa "because students seem to be here mainly to get an educ tion rather than just have a good time." - Kelb Tolron - 358 f Industrial Education 1 1" r a c 3 3 , I' if Ji if
