COMPLEXITY IN TRAINING THE THIRD WORLD ENGINEERS

This paper briefly discusses certain broad questions; both the questions discussed and the views expressed stem from a British background. In the third world, requirements exist for a trained engineering force at all levels of responsibility; the close specification of jobs at all levels; and a national manpower planning, job analysis and training/educational service. An open question must exist as to what politcal, economic and social policy should be adopted in providing a trained force of engineers capable of dealing with the necessary work. Another open question is that of the means of communicating information and directions particularly during initial engineering training. The question of what language to be used in training is considered. Should engineering be taught as a science? Certain cultural aspects of training third world personnel are noted. Comments are made on the training of maintenance engineers.
