DEPARTMENT:            Technology Studies

MISSION:        The mission of the Department of Technology Studies is to provide citizens of the State of
           Kansas, the United States, and the world with technology programs and services which prepare
           individuals for success in business, industry, education and government. More specifically the six
           departmental programs prepare and/or provide:
           • industrial technologists with necessary technical, managerial and customer relations knowledge
              and skills in industry, business, and government.
           • technicians for automotive service and construction service industries.
           • technology education teachers for middle school, secondary school, and college level
           • technologically literate students at PSU through a general education in technology
           • curriculum research, design, evaluation and other consultative services to the Kansas State Board
              of Education and educational constituencies of Kansas and the Nation.
           • support for scholarly endeavors and involvement in professional organizations.
           • individual development of students through organizations, advisement, and counseling.

VISION STATEMENT:
           It is the vision of the Department of Technology Studies to be the national leader in the quality
           preparation of successful automotive technologists, wood technologists, technology education
           teachers, automotive service technicians, and maintenance technicians (i.e., industrial electricians

         TST Chairman’s Comments Regarding This Strategic Plan and PSU Policies

   The success of this plan in achieving its goals is dependent upon some overall key decisions by
   upper administration, Faculty Senate and the Board of Regents. Policies and decisions related to
   the items listed below not only impact the TST Department, but PSU as a whole. These items
   include:

   1) Adoption of the Bachelor of Applied Science in Technology. This provides a career path
      for students completing an AAS degree in community colleges. This is key to the
      development of future partnerships, such as with Harley-Davidson. The adoption of this
      degree program has the potential to attract a number of new students to PSU and provide them
      with an opportunity to pursue a quality, bachelor degree.

   2) Provision for Out-of-State Tuition Waiver for Corporately-Affiliated Programs. This is a
      policy that would open the doors for new corporate partnerships as well as the expansion of
      existing ones. The PSU ThinkBigger program is “crippled” by the out-of-state tuition rates
      that dissuade prospective participants in the program and rapidly depletes limited scholarship
      funding. PSU is positioned to be a Center for corporately affiliated programs, but current
      policies are a deterrent to growth and expansion of these opportunities. The contributions of
      hundreds of thousands of in-kind giving more than compensate our institution. Programs
      should be approved by PSU for such a waiver.

   3) Joint Business and Technology On-line Degree. A degree tailored toward management
      personnel and leaders of corporations, such as Caterpillar (proposed “ThinkBIGGEST
      Program”), John Deere, Harley-Davidson, etc. PSU has excellent programs that could support
      such a program. Caterpillar has approached the College of Technology about such a program;
      Harley-Davidson also was involved in some preliminary discussions about career paths and
      on-line graduate opportunities, etc. The package of courses associated with such a degree
      could include on-line courses from the other colleges.

   4) Resourcing–Additional Positions in Automotive Technology Area. PSU has opportunity
      for tremendous growth in Diesel and Heavy Equipment (DH&E), Automotive Collision and
      Insurance Service Management (ACISM), and Training. Once the D&HE degree program and
      ACISM emphasis area are legislated and sufficiently advertised, the program will most likely
      experience a growth spurt. In the last year, Dr. Robert Frisbee has cultivated support and
      interest for the ACISM program. However, we cannot adequately address increases with the
      current level of faculty and OOE resources. We have been very dependent on using soft
      money to underwrite regular operating expenses. Growth in automotive programs impacts
      enrollments in business and English (i.e., Technical Writing) support courses.
