NEW BEDFORD INSTITUTE 
OF TECHNOLOGY 

General Information 



THE COLLEGE 

Aims 

The Institute of Technology is a college which prepares selected 
young men and women for careers in science, engineering and business. It 
seeks to obtain .as students well-rounded young people who have achieved 
respectable academic records in high school and proved themselves as 
interested, good school citizens. The Institute feels that if such a student 
applies himself to the task he can meet the Institute's academic standards 
successfully. Although the training offered at the Institute is related pri- 
marily to scientific and industrial problems, the college recognizes that, 
especially today, an ever-increasing proportion of the administrators of 
industry is drawn from technical professions. For this reason the In- 
stitute has included in its curricula a number of courses related to human 
nature and relations. The Institute, therefore, by setting standards of 
performance which require that the student master both theory and ap- 
plication, and by setting up courses to stimulate a student's interest in 
personal and industrial problems, seeks as its goal a well-rounded per- 
sonality. 

The effectiveness of this educational approach is indicated by the 
readiness with which the seniors at the Institute find good positions at 
graduation. In recent years many of its graduates find themselves hold- 
ing positions of trust and responsibility as members of industrial man- 
agement. 

History 

The Institute of Technology, one of the most modern and best- 
equipped institutes of its kind in the world, was established and incor- 
porated by the Board of Trustees on August 1, 1895, under Chapter 475 
of the Acts of 1895 of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

The first meeting of the Board of Trustees was held on January 
27, 1896 and committees were appointed to supervise activities with re- 
lation to building finance, machinery, education and other necessary 
executive functions. During the year 1897 the city of New Bedford 
appropriated $25,000 for the use of the school and the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts appropriated an additional $25,000 the following year. 
With these funds the first of the present buildings was constructed. 

Since its founding the Institute has attempted to organize and 
conduct programs in technology which will equip the student to cope 



General Information 11 

successfully with problems relative to industrial development, manu- 
facturing and research. It has been its policy to provide, consistently, 
instruction in both the theory and practice in all phases of dyeing, man- 
ufacturing and distribution of textiles. 

In addition to its program in textile education, the Institute has 
over the years introduced programs in technology relative to industrial 
areas other than textile manufacturing. These include courses of in- 
struction in chemistry, textile chemistry, textile design and fashion, 
mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and business adminis- 
tration. 

The New Bedford Institute of Technology is proud of its profes- 
sional standing and of the recognition it receives throughout the world. 
This recognition is evidenced by the representatives of various countries 
who have enrolled at the Institute. This representation as for the most 
part include students from Mexico, Israel, Ecuador, Salvador, Korea, 
Pakistan, Philippines, France, Chile, Bolivia, Canada, Formosa, Haiti, 
Brazil, Greece, Iraq and Turkey. 

Environment 

The Institute is situated in the city of New Bedford, Massachu- 
setts, a city with a population of over 100,000 people. It is located along 
the main bus line; both the bus terminal and railroad stations are within 
walking distance. 

New Bedford, an industrial city, is an especially suitable location 
for a technical college. For many years it was recognized as the whaling 
city of the world, and later as the world's largest manufacturer of fine 
cotton yarns and fabrics. Today New Bedford is a city of many diver- 
sified industries; these industries include the manufacture and/or proc- 
essing of rubber products, electronic equipment, machine tools, screws 
and facets as well as textiles. This historic city is still recognized as a 
leading fishing port. Each year, millions of dollars worth of fish are 
brought into this port, either for direct shipment or for New Bedford's 
large fish processing houses. 

These industries, both old and new, afford the Institute many 
opportunities for planned inspection trips. This, we feel, is an invalu- 
able aid in acquainting the student with the practical phases of his aca- 
demic work. 

Students wishing to remain in New Bedford during the summer 
recess will find many opportunities to work during this period. Because 
of the nature of the city's industry, the student often finds work which 
is in his chosen field, thereby gaining practical experience as well as fi- 
nancial aid to meet the expenses incurred during the school year. 

The civic center of New Bedford is a few minutes walk from the 
school grounds. Here the student will find the municipal building, the 
main library, veterans administration building and many other city 
and county buildings. Close to the civic center he will find the city's 
largest shopping and theater district. 



12 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

Status 

The New Bedford Institute of Technology is accredited by the 
Collegiate Board of Authority of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 
This authority grants a Bachelor of Science degree to graduates who 
have successfully completed the prescribed courses. The Collegiate Board 
of Authority has also granted permission to confer the Master of Science 
degree in Textile Technology and Textile Chemistry. 

The Honorary Doctorial and Master of Science degrees are 
awarded to those whose outstanding achievements in the respective fields 
are recognized. 

The Institute is approved for the education of veterans under 
P. L. 550, 87th Congress and P. L. 894, 81st Congress. 

The Institute is approved by the offices of the Attorney General 
for the admission of alien students. 

The Institute also plays a prominent roll in the National Council 
of Textile Education. Students' chapters at the Institute are sponsored 
by the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, American Association 
of Textile Chemists and Colorists, and the American Association of Tex- 
tile Technologists. 

Buildings and Equipment 

Art and Library Building. This was the first building erected on 
the present campus by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Completed 
in 1889, this three-story building now houses all art studios, the micros- 
copy and photo-microscopy laboratories, the warp preparation labora- 
tory, the Bookstore, and a student office for the Institute's newspaper 
"Tech Talk." 

Each of the art studios is equipped with drawing tables, stools, 
easels, tabourets and reference material to provide the student with those 
training facilities needed for the successful study of design, drawing and 
painting. 

The microscopy and photo-microscopy laboratories are used in 
conjunction with courses relating to the quantitative and qualitative 
study of the composition of textile and other related materials. These 
laboratories are equipped with a wide range of microscopes, cameras, 
and supplementary instruments used by the students in obtaining ex- 
perimental data. 

Winding, warping and slashing equipment for both the cotton 
and synthetic systems are available for student use and demonstration 
in the warp preparation laboratory. 

Textile Engineering Building. This structure was erected in 1902 
by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as an addition to the Art and 
Library building, and, in 1905, was enlarged to provide an additional 
20,000 square feet of floor space for textile manufacturing equipment. 

The complete line of manufacturing equipment housed in this 
building enables the student to learn the mechanics and capabilities of 



General Information 13 

the individual machines in processing any fibers whether natural or man- 
made, into yarn and woven or knitted fabrics of various types. 

Instruments and physical testing machines necessary for the train- 
ing of students in the determination of all fiber yarn and fabric appear- 
ance and strength characteristics can be found in the testing laboratory. 

Chemistry and Engineering Building. Completed in 1911, this 
separate structure houses the main chemistry, the tool manufacturing, 
the engineering drawing and machine tool, the electronics, the dyeing 
and finishing and the biological laboratories; it also houses the library, 
modern lecture rooms and a pilot plant for chemical research. 

All chemical, engineering and electronic laboratories provide the 
student with the necessary equipment to perform practical experiments 
or projects in order to correlate class theory with practical and experi- 
mental proof. 

A complete line of full scale commercial dyeing and finishing 
machinery make the Dyeing and Finishing laboratory one of the best 
equipped of any college. Full scale dyeing and finishing of cotton, rayon, 
nylon, dacron and wool piece goods, as well as yarn dyeing, is conducted 
by students. 

Engineering and Science Building. The most recent building on 
campus was completed in the spring of 1956, and comprises the major 
portion of the Institute's expansion program for more adequate class- 
room and laboratory facilities. This structure supplements the present 
facilities of the college with modern engineering, science and research 
laboratories. These include mechanical engineering, electrical engineer- 
ing, physics, physical chemistry and microbiology laboratories. In addi- 
tion, it houses all administrative offices, additional classrooms, an am- 
phitheater and a modern gymnasium. 

The most modern equipment has been acquired and installed 
within the various laboratories. The electrical engineering laboratory, 
for instance, contains ten motor-generator sets including three units es- 
pecially designed for dynometer tests, and two control panels with associ- 
ated control equipment. Voltage up to 250 volts D.C. can be distributed 
to all other laboratories in the building by a central control system. 

The laboratory facilities in the Mechanical Engineering Depart- 
ment make possible the verification of classroom theory; the observation 
and measurement of variations in the characteristics of materials under 
controlled conditions; and the range and scope of the more common 
materials and machines in use today. 

The newly constructed physics, physical chemistry and microbi- 
ology laboratories are equipped with the most modern instrumentation 
to be found in any college of comparable size in New England. 

Future Expansion 

A ten year $6,000,000 expansion program has recently been ap- 
proved by the Board of Trustees of the Institute. This program includes 
construction of a research and graduate school, a student union building, 



14 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

a library, an arts and science building and an administration building. 
Such an expansion will allow the Institute to increase its present enroll- 
ment of 550 students to nearly 1,100 students. 

Plans are now being completed to add a new auditorium to the 
present Engineering and Science building.

STUDENT REGULATIONS 

Conduct 

It is assumed that students matriculating in any one of the various 
programs offered by the Institute have attained sufficient maturity and 
developed those attributes conducive to an adequate preparation for 
professional careers. This means that the administration at the Institute 
expects that each student will have developed an ability to get along 
well with others and to maintain a personal high standard of honesty 
and moral conduct. The Institute has not established any rigid rules 
restricting the conduct of individuals or groups of students. However, 
it will be understood that a student may be dropped from the rolls or 
subjected to other disciplinary action, for conduct which is illegal, im- 
moral, or not in keeping with the best interest of the Institute. 

Attendance 

Every student is expected to be present at all lectures and labora- 
tories for which he is registered, unless a satisfactory excuse can be 
presented for his absence. Excessive absence will result in disciplinary 
action which 'may lead to loss of credit for a course, suspension or dis- 
missal. 

Withdrawals 

No freshman will be permitted to withdraw from a course. 

An upperclassman may be permitted to withdraw from a 
course, without penalty, only during the first six weeks of 
the semester. Withdrawals without permission or after the 
first six-week period will be recorded as failures. To with- 
draw from a course without penalty a student must: 

notify his faculty advisor of his intention. 

receive permission from the Dean of Students to 
withdraw from a course. 

Any student withdrawing from the Institute must first con- 
sult with the Business Office. Failure to do so will prevent 
the Institute from giving the student a certificate of 
honorable dismissal. 

A deficiency resulting from failure may be removed by: 

repeating the course the next time it may be re-scheduled, 
or securing transfer credit in a comparable course from 
some other accredited institution. Only grades of "C" or 
better are accepted for transfer credit. Such courses for 
transfer must be approved in advance by the Dean of 
Students. When a subject which has been failed is repeated 
at the Institute, the new grade is entered on the student's 
record in addition to the original grade. 



General Information 19 

Eligibility 

No student placed on the probation status is eligible to participate 
in athletics or hold an elective office in non-athletic activities. 



GRADING AND DEGREES 

Grading System 

The following grading system shall be used: 

A — Excellent (90 and above) 

B— Good (80-89) 

C— Average (70-79) 

D — Passing without credit points (60-69) 

F — Failure (below 60) 

I — Incomplete — A grade of incomplete may be assigned by the 
the instructor when a legitimate reason exists for the failure 
to complete the work on the date required. This grade 
indicates credit is withheld without prejudice to the stu- 
dent's rating pending completion of the required work. A 
grade of "I" must be removed within 30 academic calendar 
days after the completion of the course. 

Credits and Averages 

Beginning with the class entering in September of 1959, the fol- 
lowing Quality Point System will go into effect. 

The student's semester quality point rating is a weighted value 
used to denote his relative standing. The point values assigned are A = 4 
points, B = 3 points, C = 2 points, D = 1 point and F = points. These 
point values, when multiplied by the credit hours assigned to the sub- 
ject and added together, are divided by the sum of the credit hours to 
give the student's semester rating. The cumulative rating for more than 
one semester will be obtained in the same manner as the computation 
for the rating of a single semester. 

Classes which entered the Institute prior to September of 1959, 
will continue with the current system, that is, A = 3 points, B = 2 points, 
C = 1 point, D = points and F = points. 

Dean's List 

A student who, at the end of a semester, has a high scholastic 
standing will be placed on the Dean's list. This list will be posted on 
the official bulletin boards. 

Degrees with Distinction 

Students completing graduation requirements with exceptionally 
high scholastic records are graduated with distinction; that is, with dis- 
tinction, with "high" distinction, or with "highest" distinction. 



20 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

The requirements for graduation are the satisfactory completion 
of all courses in one of the prescribed curricula of the Institute, with a 
total of credit points not less than the minimum number of credit hours 
required in the individual curriculum. 

STUDENT FACILITIES AND SERVICES 
Library 

The Institute's library is under the supervision of a full-time 
librarian and contains approximately 9,000 volumes covering the fields 
of textile design and technology, chemistry, engineering, business admin- 
istration and socio-humanistic studies. By gift or subscription the library 
receives 203 publications issued periodically, including magazines, jour- 
nals and publications of professional societies and industrial organiza- 
tions. 

The library, which is housed on the third floor of the Chemistry 
and Engineering building, comprises a stock room, a reading room and 
a work room. Expansion plans call for a library building capable of 
housing a minimum of 30,000 volumes. The library is open from 
9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday and from 7:00 P.M. to 
9:00 P.M., three nights a week. Professional reference assistance is avail- 
able thirty hours a week. 

The Institute has established inter-library loan privilege with the 
New Bedford Free Public Library and can borrow freely from its book 
collection of 265,000 volumes. In addition, the facilities of this large 
municipal library are available without cost to all students at the Insti- 
tute whether or not they are residents of New Bedford. 

Bookstore 

The Institute's bookstore is located on the first floor of the Art 
and Library building. Here the student will find all the approved books 
and supplies for all courses offered by the Institute. 

Students, although not required to purchase materials from the 
bookstore, are advised not to buy elsewhere without first obtaining 
approval from their instructors. 

All proceeds from the bookstore, after operating costs have been 
met, are used to provide student services at the Institute. 

Housing 

Dormitory facilities are not provided by the Institute. For non- 
residents, however, excellent accommodations with private families living 
within walking distance of the Institute are readily available. A list of 
approved rooms is maintained and arrangements may be made through 
the Institute to secure suitable living quarters. Accommodations for 
fraternal brothers of Phi Psi and Delta Kappa Phi are available at their 
respective fraternity houses. 



General Information 21 

Lounges 

Two lounges are maintained for student use; one is located in the 
Art and Library building, and the other, in the Engineering and Science 
building. 

Both lounges are suitably furnished with chairs, tables, television 
sets, and refreshment dispensers. The lounges are used by all students 
for relaxation and for social contact with one another. 

Guidance and Counseling 

Because the Institute is a small college, a close personal relation- 
ship is maintained between the student body and the faculty. Through 
the Dean of Students and the Faculty Advisors, assistance is given to 
students during the year in the scheduling of their classes and in solving 
problems which may arise during the year. Whenever it is deemed neces- 
sary, correspondence and interviews are entered into between the Dean 
of Students and families of those students whose performance is not con- 
sidered satisfactory. 

The freshman year begins with a Freshman Orientation Period 
immediately preceding the Fall Term. Registration, general intelligence 
and aptitude tests are completed, orientation lectures on campus and 
professional life are given. Interpretive results of the intelligence and 
aptitude tests are available to the students, to the Dean of Students, 
and to the faculty advisors to aid in the making of decisions throughout 
the student's college career. 

An average of one and one-half hours of preparation for each 
hour of lecture or recitation will be required of freshmen. 

Each student's performance is evaluated four times during the 
academic year; that is, his scholastic standing is obtained at the end of 
the first eight weeks and at the end of each semester. This procedure 
is followed in order to allow the administration to inform the student 
of his standing and advise him more effectively as to the need for re- 
medial action should such action be required. 

Psychological Services 

A counseling service is provided by the school for students with 
problems of personal adjustment. Such students may be referred to this 
service by faculty members, advisors, or others on the college staff, or 
they may seek consultation directly. 

Placement 

A Student Placement Service is maintained at the Institute on a 
full-time basis. The main purpose of this office is to aid and assist the 
graduating students to secure positions in their chosen fields of endeavor. 
This office keeps abreast of the needs of the various industries and passes 
this information along to the graduates. 

The Placement Officer arranges for all on-campus interviews and 
helps both the visiting officials and the students to get the most out of 



22 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

such on-campus interviews. The graduate can alsa-fhrd many application 
forms for employment with various concerns in the Placement Office. 
Also he is allowed to utilize many of the College Directories and Place- 
ment Annuals which list possible employment offers that are housed in 
the College Placement Office at Tech. 

The U. S. Government listings are also posted weekly and many 
of Tech's graduates have gone into one of the many departments of 
government work. The government also has employed many of our 
students for summer-time work in their various fields and this informa- 
tion is also passed on to the underclassmen. 

The Placement Service is not a guarantee of employment but it 
does serve the graduate toward successfully positioning himself. In addi- 
tion to student placement the service is also extended to Alumni 'mem- 
bers who are desiring a change of position or re-location. The Placement 
Office handles all requests for experienced personnel through the Alumni- 
membership.

further research toward the practical use of such material. 



ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

The Alumni Association of the New Bedford Institute of Tech- 
nology has a twofold purpose: In its social aspect it serves to continue 
and renew the friendships and feelings of comradeship which all alumni 
felt as students; from a service viewpoint it aids the administration of 
the Institute by bringing to its attention those curricula omissions and/or 
changes which would up-grade the standards of its graduates; the as- 
sociation serves the alumni as a focal point for placements; it serves as 
a clearinghouse for news about, and of interest to, the alumni; it helps 
the Institute in those cases where alumni financial aid can be of the ut- 
most assistance; and it furnishes both the administration of the Institute 
and all alumni a common and unifying point of contact. 

All who have spent a minimum of the equivalent of one academic 
year at the New Bedford Institute of Technology are considered alumni 
of the Institute.

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 

Economic productivity and progress are dependent to a consider- 
able extent upon sound and effective business management. As industry 
and our economy expand, education for business at the collegiate level 
becomes more significant. Collegiate instruction in business administra- 
tion, according to the American Council on Education, is now being of- 
fered in more than five hundred institutions of higher learning in the 
United States. A recent report of the United States Office of Education 
stated, "Collegiate education for business has had one of the fastest — if 
not the fastest — growths of any of the areas of higher education and to- 
day constitutes an important and significant part of collegiate instruc- 
tion." 

In recognition of these facts, the Board of Trustees at the In- 
stitute voted in 1958 to add to the curricula a complete program in Busi- 
ness Administration. The program was inaugurated with a freshman 
class of seventy students in September of that year. The Massachusetts 
Board of Collegiate Authority has approved this new curriculum and 
the award of the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administra- 
tion to all students who complete the four years of prescribed study. 

The Business Administration curriculum offered at the Institute 
reflects the increasing awareness in industry of the fact that merely tech- 
nically-trained personnel are not adequate to meet the changing needs 
of world economy. It recognizes that the ultimate aim of education is 
to produce an intellectually and emotionally mature person with a sound 
sense of values as well as competence in technical skills. Consequently, 
the new curriculum incorporates the standard adopted by the American 
Association of Collegiate Schools of Business that at least forty per cent 
of the total hours required for the Bachelor's degree must be in the area 
of general or liberal arts education and at least forty per cent in the 
area of business administration. Its specific objective will be in the edu- 
cation of students to their fullest potential for competence in business 
and effectiveness in civic life. 

This course of study is planned to aid students in preparing for 
positions of responsibility in business. During the first two years funda- 
mental courses in English, mathematics, accounting, social science, a 
foreign language, and basic courses in economics are required. After 
completion of the sophomore year, students are permitted a choice of 
three major fields for study in their junior and senior years: Accounting, 
Marketing or Management. At this point, aptitude and ability of the 
student, as well as his interest in subject matter of the curriculum, are 
re-examined with his advisers for the purpose of providing proper guid- 
ance in the selection of his major field, a matter of primary importance. 

Accounting 

The need for personnel trained in the skillful application of ac- 
counting principles has become increasingly apparent in all lines of in- 
dustry and business. The accurate interpretation of financial reports 



34 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

and the necessity for efficiency as well as competence in record keeping 
for business are considered of paramount importance to business man- 
agement. Accounting is often considered the "backbone" of management. 
Public, private, institutional, and government accounting present al- 
most unlimited opportunities for the practice of the skilled accountant. 
Opportunities for women as well as men are rapidly increasing. Also to 
be considered is the fact that an accountant is frequently in a favorable 
position to move up to executive or managerial responsibilities as the re- 
sult of his background knowledge and experience. 

The accounting major program at the Institute includes, in ad- 
dition to the required general education subjects, courses in statistics, 
business law, cost accounting, auditing, taxes, and principles of man- 
agement. 

Marketing 

The sale and distribution of the products of industry and the 
many public and private services necessary to the economic life and prog- 
ress everywhere provide a great many people with absorbing and lucra- 
tive vocations. Trained personnel in these fields may progress faster and 
further than those who have not had the opportunity for study at the 
collegiate level. 

The marketing program provides specialized training in the tech- 
nicalities of buying as well as selling, with courses in retail store man- 
agement and modern wholesaling. Market research, government regula- 
tion of business, taxation, insurance, and personnel administration are 
included in addition to the required core curriculum. 

Management 

The course of study here is aimed to assist the young man or 
woman who is interested in preparing to assume responsibilities in busi- 
ness that may lead to junior executive or management positions. The 
possibility of proprietorship interest in his own or his family's business 
is also considered. Study in the management major should facilitate ad- 
vancement toward top executive positions following some years of busi- 
ness experience. This program of study includes fundamental courses 
in accounting, business law, principles of management, labor relations, 
personnel administration, government regulation of business, effective 
speaking and seminars in the problems of business. 

In each of the three major areas, provision may be made for elec- 
lives in other departments at the Institute for students who indicate spe- 
cial interests and aptitudes. Such elective courses may be arranged by 
the student in consultation with his faculty adviser and with the Depart- 
ment Heads concerned.

CHEMISTRY 

Chemistry is the study of matter, its properties and transforma- 
tions. Since all manufacturing industries must start with some form 
of matter for the fabrication of their finished products, the science of 
chemistry is fundamental to all industry and for this reason, chemists 
are employed by many concerns other than those actually manufacturing 
chemicals. In recent times manufacturing companies are tending more 
and more to develop, on their own, new materials for specific purposes. 
As a result, the need for chemists is continually increasing. The advent 
of the space and atomic age has produced many problems that must be 
solved by the chemist. For example, development of materials capable 
of withstanding and insulating against terrific heat, rocket fuels of much 
greater power, stronger and lighter alloys, and lighter and more efficient 
materials for shielding against radiation are necessary before engineers 
can advance very far in space vehicle design. 

The chemistry curricula at the Institute are designed to give a 
solid foundation in the fundamental principles of chemistry and to 
provide sufficient training in laboratory techniques to form a basis for 
specialized work in the chemical or allied industrial fields chosen by the 
student. Courses in the fundamental sciences of mathematics and 
physics coupled with instruction in the socio-humanistic studies yield 
a well-balanced program which prepares the student for industrial 
careers or for graduate school. 

The Institute offers two chemistry curricula leading to a Bachelor 
of Science degree: 

Chemistry 

The Department of Chemistry offers a specialized curriculum 
leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. Students are 
prepared for positions in any chemical field by arranging their course 
time so that approximately the same number of hours are taken in the 
four fundamental branches of chemistry, i.e., organic, inorganic, analyti- 
cal and physical. 

Textile Chemistry 

The Textile Chemistry curriculum is designed to prepare students 
for careers as chemists or dyers in the textile, synthetic fiber, cellulose 
and other allied industries. Because this curriculum is mainly intended 
to aid the textile and allied industries by preparing qualified textile 
chemists, it is discussed more fully under "TEXTILES" on page 51 of 
this bulletin.

ENGINEERING 

With the ever-increasing influence of science and technology on 
our civilization, the demand of modern industry for young engineers, 
competently trained and capable of assuming responsibilities, has like- 
wise increased. 

The engineering curricula at the Institute are designed to meet 
the rapid changes of our day and to prepare qualified young men and 
women interested in an engineering career. The content of each cur- 
riculum is arranged to provide a well-rounded professional education by 
maintaining a proper balance between the fundamental sciences of 
mathematics, chemistry and physics; the socio-humanistic studies such 
as English, literature, economics and psychology; and the required 
basic engineering and technological subjects. 

Specific options or majors are not offered by the Institute's 
engineering curricula. Each curriculum, however, is organized to give 
a thorough training in the various phases of the field of specialization 
without over-emphasizing any one phase to the neglect of any others. 
Specialization in any one phase is left for industry or to graduate study. 

Inasmuch as the fundamentals of engineering are common to all 
segments of this profession, the program of study for all freshman 
engineering majors is basically the same. This allows the student an 
opportunity to reverse any decision made earlier as to the engineering 
curriculum best adapted to his abilities and interests. It also allows 
faculty advisers to help the student in deciding where his potential can 
be more fully realized. 

The Institute offers three Bachelor of Science degrees in the field 
of engineering: 

Electrical Engineering 

Electrical Engineering is concerned with the generation and 
utilization of electrical energy. With the rapid expansion of this field 
many new areas of specialization such as instrumentation, computation, 
guidance, control and automation have become part of the Electrical 
Engineering field, yet only yesterday these areas were unknown. For 
this reason, it is felt that tomorrow many of our present-day students 
will find themselves working with aspects of Electrical Engineering 
which today are virtually unknown. 

The curriculum in Electrical Engineering contains a select series 
of fundamental studies to provide the student with the background 
necessary to meet the challenges of the present and of the future. In 
keeping with current thought relative to engineering curricula, a study 
of the basic concepts of mathematics, chemistry and physics is empha- 
sized during the first two years; engineering sciences and the appli- 
cability of these sciences to engineering analysis and design is developed 
in the latter two years. 



Undergraduate Courses of Study 43 

Mechanical Engineering 

Mechanical Engineering extends into practically all branches of 
manufacturing and processing industries, as well as power generation, 
transportation and plant construction. 

In each industry there are several functions which the Mechanical 
Engineer may perform; that is, he may be assigned to general research, 
or to testing of materials or to testing of machine elements. He may be 
employed in the design of machinery relative to the development of 
manufacturing processes and plants; he may be engaged in the con- 
struction of machinery and in the production of goods; he may become 
associated with plant efficiency or with problems of management; or 
he may be attracted to the excellent opportunities in sales engineering. 
In all cases, placement in these fields leads to positions of responsibility 
and trust. 

Emphasis in the freshman and sophomore years is placed on the 
fundamental sciences of mathematics, physics and chemistry common to 
all engineering curricula. In the junior and senior years, such subjects 
as strength of materials, metallurgy, applied mechanics, thermodynamics, 
fluid mechancis, electronics and electrical engineering are given the 
greater emphasis. The Mechanical Engineering curriculum also offers 
exceptional opportunities for training in the fundamentals of machine 
design. A laboratory program including design, machine shop and 
engineering laboratory experiments provides association with the prac- 
tical application of engineering operations. 

Textile Engineering 

The curriculum in Textile Engineering is especially designed for 
students interested in positions in the textile and allied industries which 
may involve research and engineering principles. 

Eighty-two credit hours or approximately fifty-five percent of this 
curriculum is devoted to the fundamental sciences and engineering 
subjects necessary to any engineering program. The student obtains 
both a solid engineering background and a sufficient knowledge of the 
techniques employed in the processing of fibers, whether natural or 
synthetic, into yarn and fabrics of varying characteristics. The student 
also learns the methods used in the dyeing and finishing of textile 
products as well as the methods used in the testing of fiber, yarn and 
fabric strength and appearance characteristics. 

The Textile Engineering curriculum also affords an excellent 
opportunity to students interested in furthering their study on the 
graduate level.

TEXTILES 

Because food, clothing and shelter are recognized as the three 
basic needs of man, the manufacture of textiles has become one of the 
world's leading industries. For this reason, the textile industry has so 
developed that it now ranks among the top five American industries in 
value of its product. It has been estimated that one-sixth of the total 
working population is employed in textile and allied industries. 

Recent developments in new fibers, methods of processing, and 
dyeing and finishing technology have resulted in the need for specially 
trained men and women with a knowledge of the technology of textile 
processing and/or chemistry and engineering. Because the industry also 
recognizes the importance of a well-rounded education, it is felt that a 
knowledge of socio-humanistic studies, along with accounting and man- 
agement, will allow the textile graduate to meet more successfully the 
demands made of him. 

Because of the size and diversity of textile and related industries, 
numerous opportunities are available for young men and women whose 
interests might lie in research, engineering, production, technology, 
sales, marketing, chemistry, design and fashion, and management. Start- 
ing salaries in the textile industry are comparable to those of any other 
major industry. Ambitious and alert college graduates will find ex- 
cellent opportunities for advancement in these fields. A recent survey 
has shown that textile executives reach the top sooner and hold their 
jobs longer than any other industrial executive. 

The Institute offers four textile curricula leading to a Bachelor 
of Science degree: 

Textile Chemistry 

The Textile Chemistry curriculum is designed to prepare stu- 
dents for careers as chemists or dyers in the textile, synthetic fiber, cel- 
lulose and other allied industries. This curriculum also provides a sound 
background for careers in sales and technical services. It provides a 
fundamental training in the fields of inorganic, organic, analytical, phys- 
ical and textile chemistry. Courses in the social sciences and humanities 
as well as other basic sciences provide a well-rounded program which pre- 
pares the student for industrial professions or for graduate training. 

Textile Design and Fashion 

Modern advancements in textile technology point up a paramount 
need for a co-ordination of the special techniques of fabric and apparel 
designers. The styling, designing and development of fabrics and tex- 
tures now require an expanded technical knowledge on the part of 
those concerned with the artistic and functional elements of textile 
materials. 

The Textile Design and Fashion curriculum at the Institute of- 
fers the student instruction in design, drawing, painting and the history 
of art as the principal subjects during the Freshman Year. The latter 



52 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

years are concerned with such courses as applied textile design, theories 
and practical studies in textile manufacturing, graphic arts and further 
studies in the history of art, drawing and painting. With the exception 
of the Freshman Year, projects are completed whereby students create 
and execute their own original fabric and apparel designs. 

To give the student a well-balanced college education, courses in 
the socio-humanistic studies, such as English composition, psychology, 
economics and literature are included in the curriculum. 

Textile Engineering 

The curriculum in Textile Engineering is especially designed for 
students interested in positions in textile and allied industries which 
may involve research and engineering principles. Because this course is 
basically an engineering curriculum, it is discussed more fully under 
the engineering section of this bulletin, page 43. 

Textile Technology 

The curriculum in Textile Technology is designed to prepare 
students to become competent textile technologists for eventual super- 
visory, administrative, or executive positions within the industry and re- 
lated fields. This curriculum also provides a sound background for 
careers in sales and technical services. The main concern of this program 
is to acquaint the student with the theories and practical applications of 
yarn and fabric processing, fabric design and structure, determination of 
fiber and fabric strength and appearance characteristics, and the tech- 
nology of dyeing and printing. The student is also acquainted with the 
properties, characteristics, uses, types, and availability of all textile fibers, 
natural or man-made. Twenty-six credit hours or sixteen percent of this 
curriculum is devoted to accounting and management courses. Such 
courses prepare and aid the individual for administrative and managerial 
positions. An equal percentage of the curriculum is also devoted to socio- 
humanistic studies in order to give the student a well-balanced education. 

Knitting Option. This option in the Junior and Senior years has 
been made available so that the knitting segment of the textile industry 
may receive trained personnel in the fundamentals and practices of proc- 
essing knitted textiles. Because of the selected courses in this curriculum, 
students will be prepared for a future not only in the knitting industry, 
but also in the yarn manufacturing industry. In either case, the student 
will have a background sufficient to allow him, should he so desire, to 
enter the fields of sales and technical services.

The Graduate School 

GENERAL INFORMATION 

The New Bedford Institute of Technology has been authorized by 
Act of the General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to 
confer the degrees of Master of Science in Textile Technology and Mas- 
ter of Science in Textile Chemistry. 

These graduate programs are designed to allow able students to 
further their studies in a specialized area not possible in the undergrad- 
uate curriculum. In addition to taking advanced courses in his field of 
special interest, a candidate is required to investigate a specific problem 
such as might be encouraged in a research laboratory or textile plant 
and, under competent guidance, to carry it through from start to finish; 
finally, the candidate is required to evaluate and interpret his finding in 
his Master's thesis. This experience is deemed excellent preparation to- 
ward a more advanced degree or a position of supervisory capacity in 
textile or allied industries.

NEW BEDFORD INSTITUTE 
OF TECHNOLOGY 

Non- Degree Courses of Study 



The primary function of the New Bedford Institute of Tech- 
nology is to afford an opportunity, primarily to the people of Massachu- 
setts, to further their education beyond the secondary level. It is for 
this reason that the Institute offers, aside from the degree programs, 
three-year diploma curricula in the field of textiles. Graduates of the 
diploma programs have found numerous opportunities in the textile 
and allied industries. For years management has recognized such gradu- 
ates as an asset to certain functions within their organization, and in 
many cases even in supervisory capacities. 

The Institute offers two diploma curricula in the field of textiles: 

Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing 

The Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing curriculum is designed to 
meet the needs of students seeking such positions as chemists or dyers, 
laboratory technicians and production supervisors. The course content is 
similar to that of the Textile Chemistry degree program but with less 
emphasis on the socio-humanistic studies and the basic sciences of mathe- 
matics and physics. The student acquires, however, a sufficient knowledge 
of organic, inorganic and analytical chemistry coupled with textile chem- 
istry, dyeing and finishing to prepare him for positions of responsibility 
and trust. 

Textile Manufacturing 

The Textile Manufacturing curriculum is designed for students 
whose interest lie in such fields as testing, quality control, production or 
fabric design and structure. Students in the diploma program take all 
the textile courses offered in the Textile Technology degree curriculum. 
Greater emphasis is, however, given to the practical aspects of textile 
manufacturing rather than to the theoretical. Because of the limitation 
of time and the function of this program, students receive only a mini- 
mum of instruction in the basic sciences and the socio-humanistic studies. 

Further information pertaining to non-degree courses may be 
secured from the Business Office or by addressing:
