NEW BEDFORD 
INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY 

General Information 

THE COLLEGE 

Objectives 

As an educational institution, the New Bedford Institute of Tech- 
nology is dedicated to the task of stimulating intellectual growth. It 
seeks not only to provide each student with a solid foundation for profes- 
sional training, but also to cultivate in him a lifelong intellectual curiosity 
and a yearning for truth. It also seeks to instill a desire for self-improve- 
ment, not only professional but cultural as well, in order that each graduate 
may take his place among educated men and women in every walk of life. 
Attainment of this objective is facilitated through the creation of an atmos- 
phere conducive to learning provided by a capable and inspiring faculty 
and an enlightened and progressive administration. 

As an institution of higher learning, the Institute is charged with 
the responsibility for the advancement of learning through research and 
also for the preservation and interpretation of accumulated knowledge. 
Upon the proper discharge of this responsibility depends the welfare not 
only of the nation but of the world. Its importance is so great that no 
institution possessing the capability can afford to neglect it. In addition, 
this activity on the part of the faculty members keeps them intellectually 
curious, alert, and resourceful and enables them to offer the student the 
maximum in exemplification and inspiration. 

As a technological institution, this Institute devotes its major activ- 
ity to technical subjects. In a broad sense these may be defined as 
mathematics, the pure sciences, the applied sciences, the business sciences 
and those practical arts utilizing scientific or systematic procedures. 

History 

Founded in 1895, the New Bedford Institute of Technology has 
been, from its very beginning, one of the most modern and best-equipped 
schools of its type in the world. 

At the first meeting of the Board of Trustees on January 27, 1896, 
committees were appointed to supervise the building and financing of 
the school, the establishment of a curriculum, and the installation of 
machinery and other equipment. In 1897, the city of New Bedford 
appropriated $25,000 for the use of the school, and the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts appropriated a similar amount in the following year. 
With these funds, the first of the present buildings was constructed. The 
Institute is now one of the Massachusetts state colleges. 



12 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

Since its founding, the Institute has moved with the times. During 
its first year, it was concerned primarily with training students to play 
important roles in the textile industry. Instruction was emphasized in 
both the theory and practice of all phases of manufacturing, finishing, 
and distribution of textiles. 

In recent years, however, in adjusting to the demands of the 
economic climate, the Institute has, in addition to its internationally- 
known curriculum in textiles, introduced first-rate programs in other 
forms of technology. Such educational fields as mechanical engineering, 
electrical engineering, chemistry, textile chemistry, textile design and fash- 
ion, and business administration have become part of an ever-expanding 
curriculum. 

Furthermore, a new emphasis has been placed on purely cultural 
courses in the arts and social sciences, since any engineer, technologist, 
or student of business administration will be a better-rounded individual 
if he has an acquaintance with what Matthew Arnold has called "the best 
that has been thought and said." 

Part of the educational policy of the Institute is its strong belief 
that any college graduate be afforded the opportunity to gain knowledge 
and appreciation of the ideas, the movements, the creative contributions 
that are the basis of the heritage of Western civilization. 

The New Bedford Institute of Technology is justifiably proud 
of its professional standing and the recognition it receives throughout 
the world. This recognition is evidenced by the many representatives of 
foreign countries who have matriculated at the Institute. This repre- 
sentation has, over the years, included students from Canada, Mexico, 
Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Bolivia, Salvador, the Philippines, Korea, Pakistan, 
India, Formosa, Haiti, France, Portugal, Greece, Turkey, and Iraq. 

Environment 

Situated in New Bedford, Massachusetts, a city with a population 
of more than 100,000, the Institute boasts an exceptionally good location 
for a technical college. The Institute is located on the main bus line of 
the city ; in addition, it is only a brief ride from the city's modern and 
busy Municipal Airport. 

New Bedford was, for many years, recognized as the greatest 
whaling city in the world. In fact, it was from New Bedford in 1841 
that Herman Melville, the author of "Moby Dick," sailed for his historic 
voyage on the bark, Acushnet. Later in its history, with the expansion 
of the Industrial Revolution, New Bedford became the world's most im- 
portant manufacturer of fine cotton yarns and fabrics. 

Today, the city is a center for many diversified industries. These 
include the manufacturing and processing of rubber products, electronic 
equipment, aircraft, machine tools, screws and facets, and food produc- 
tion, in addition to textiles. Besides this, the city is the world's leading 
scallop port and is also in the first rank as a fishing port. 



General Information 13 

The fishing industry is a multi-million dollar enterprise, with the 
large fishing fleet supplying the city's many fish-processing houses and 
other consumers throughout the nation. In recent years, the port of New 
Bedford has also been used increasingly by merchant ships. 

Of interest, too, is New Bedford's new and attractively constructed 
Industrial Park, located on the outskirts of the city and already attracting 
a number of new industries to the community. 

These industries, both old and new, afford students at the Institute 
many opportunities for planned inspection trips, a valuable aid in acquaint- 
ing the student with the practical phases of his academic work. In addi- 
tion, the presence in the community of so many industries provides the 
student with numerous opportunities for part-time and summer employment. 

Nor are New Bedford's advantages solely industrial. The city 
itself has all the picturesque charm of an old New England port — colorful 
harbor, sandy beaches, fine examples of Federalist architecture — plus the 
modern atmosphere of a progressive industrial city. 

In addition, the city has always maintained a busy and rewarding 
cultural life. Only a few minutes walk from the Institute is the civic 
center, with its handsome buildings (including the excellent public library) 
attractive shopping areas, theatre district, and the world-famous Whaling 
Museum. And for those interested in the arts, New Bedford offers active 
amateur theatre groups, several first-rate concert and lecture series, the 
New Bedford Symphony Orchestra, art exhibits, and the like. 

In summary, this old New England city, offering the best of the 
traditional and the new, is a pleasant place in which to live and to study. 

Status 

The New Bedford Institute of Technology is accredited by the New 
England Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and is approved 
by the Collegiate Board of Authority of the Commonwealth of Massachu- 
setts. 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 the Institute permission to confer the 
Master of Science degree in Textile Technology and Textile Chemistry. 

The honorary Doctoral and Master of Science degrees are awarded 
to those whose outstanding achievements have made them leaders in their 
chosen fields of endeavor. 

The Institute also plays a prominent role in the National Council 
of Textile Education. In addition, student chapters at the Institute are 
sponsored by the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, the Institute 
of Radio Engineers, the American Association of Mechanical Engineers, 
the American Chemical Society, the American Association of Textile 
Chemists and Colorists, the American Association of Textile Technologists, 
and the National Office Management Association. 



14 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

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. 

Buildings and Equipment 

Art and Library Building — This was the first building erected on the 
present campus by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Completed in 
1898, the three-story building now houses all art studios, the microscopy 
and photo-microscopy laboratories, the warp preparation laboratory, the 
Bookstore, a student office for the college newspaper, "Tech Talk," and 
a student lounge. 

Each of the art studios is equipped with drawing tables, stools, 
easels, and reference material to provide the 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 
also are equipped with a wide range of microscopes, cameras, and supple- 
mentary instruments used in obtaining experimental 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 — Erected in 1902 by the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts as an addition to the Art and Library Building, this 
structure was enlarged in 1905 to provide an additional 20,000 square feet 
of floor space for textile manufacturing equipment. 

The complete line of manufacturing equipment enables the student 
to learn the mechanics and capabilities of the individual machines in proc- 
essing any fibers, whether natural or man-made, into yarn and woven or 
knitted fabrics of various types. 

A testing laboratory provides instruction in the determination of 
all fiber, yarn, and fabric appearance and strength characteristics. 

Chemistry and Engineering Building — Completed in 1911, this separate 
structure houses the following laboratories : chemistry, tool manufactur- 
ing, engineering drawing and machine tool, electronics, and dyeing and 
finishing. Modern lecture rooms, a pilot plant for chemical research, and 
the library also are located in this building. 

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. The dyeing and finishing laboratory allows the student to 
learn full-scale commercial dyeing and finishing of natural and man-made 
yarns and piece goods. 

Engineering and Science Building — The most recent building on the 
campus was completed in the spring of 1956. The structure supplements 



General Information 15 

the facilities of the college with modern engineering, science, and research 
laboratories and well-designed classrooms. The laboratories include those 
devoted to mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, physical 
chemistry, and microbiology. In addition, the building houses all admin- 
istrative offices, an amphitheater, and a modern gymnasium. 

Each of the laboratories is notable for its modern equipment, com- 
parable to that of any other college of comparable size in New England.

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 pro- 
fessional 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 restrict- 
ing 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, immoral, 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 dismissal. 

Withdrawals 

A freshman is not permitted to withdraw from a course. 

An upperclassman is permitted to withdraw from a course, without 
penalty, only during the first six weeks of the semester and with per- 
mission of his faculty advisor and the Dean of Students. After the first 
six weeks and with permission of the faculty advisor and Dean of Stu- 
dents, an upperclassman is permitted to withdraw from a course with 
penalty, that is, WP (withdrew passing) or WF (withdrew failing). 
A withdrawal from a course without permission incurs a grade of F 
(failing). 

A student withdrawing from the Institute must first consult with 
the Dean of Students. Failure to do so may prevent the Institute from 
giving the student a certificate of honorable dismissal. 

Eligibility 

A student placed on scholastic probation is not eligible to partic- 
ipate in athletics or hold an elective office in non-athletic activities. 

GRADING SYSTEM AND HONORS 
Grading System 

At the completion of a course the student receives toward gradua- 
tion the number of semester hour credits at which the course is rated. 
The level of performance in the course is indicated by a letter grade : 
A, superior; B, above-average; C, average; D, passing, but not satisfac- 



20 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

tory; F, failing; Inc., Incomplete; WF, withdrew failing; WP, withdrew 
passing. The arithmetical equivalents of the letter grades are A, 90-100 ; 
B, 80-89; C, 70-79; D, 60-69; F. below 60. 

A student can obtain credit for an Incomplete only by finishing 
the work of the course before the end of the fourth week following the 
completion of the course. A grade of Incomplete will be automatically 
converted to a failure if the course requirements has not been satisfied by 
this time. The initiative in arranging for the removal of the Incomplete 
rests with the student. 

A deficiency resulting from failure may be removed by : repeating 
the course the next time it is 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 trans- 
fer must be approved in advance by the Registrar. 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. 

Quality Point Average 

Beginning with the class entering in September 1959 the following 
Quality Point System went into effect. 

The student's semester quality point rating is a weighed 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 subject 
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. 

If a student repeats a course, both grades are entered on his record 
and the quality points and credit hours corresponding to each are con- 
sidered in computing the average. 

Credit granted for work taken at another institution is not included 
in the quality point average. 

The quality point average for the term will be computed at the end 
of each term. The summer session is not considered as a term, and grades 
earned in summer session courses are included only in the cumulative 
quality point average. 

A. A course in which a D grade is obtained may be repeated for 
credit only with permission of the department head and the dean of students. 

Audit: A course in which a passing grade is obtained may, at the 
students discretion, be audited ; in this case, the transcript will indicate 
that the course was audited but no grade and credit received. 

Repeat: On the initiative of the faculty, a course in which a pass- 
ing grade is obtained may be repeated ; in this case, the student must 



General Information 21 

attend all classes and examination periods ; a grade but no credit will 
appear on the transcript. 

Dean's List 

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

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. 

C. A student transferring credits from another college, to be elig- 
ible for graduation with distinction, must have earned his junior-senior 
credits at the Institute. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

To qualify for graduation, a candidate must satisfy the following 
requirements : 

The satisfactory completion of all courses in one of the prescribed 
curricula. 

A cumulative quality point average of not less than 2.00. 

The completion of two years of residence as a full-time student at 
the Institute. A full-time student is one who is carrying not less than 
10 credits per semester. It is the policy of the Institute that the senior 
year be in residence. 

Library 

The library is under the supervision of a full-time professional 
librarian and contains approximately 25,000 volumes as well as audio- 
visual materials. By gift or subscription the library receives 300 publica- 
tions issued periodically. These include magazines, journals, publications 
of professional societies, and house organs of industrial organizations. 

The library, located on the third floor of the Library and Art- 
Building, consists of the library proper, an audiovisual room (The Bish- 
ion's Room) and a projection room. Hours are from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 
P.M., Monday through Friday and from 7:30 P.M. to 9:30 P.M. Monday 
through Thursday. Professional reference assistance is available 30 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 300,000 volumes. In addition, the facilities of this large munic- 
ipal library are available without cost to all students at the Institute whether 
or not they are residents of New Bedford.

New Bedford Institute of Technology 




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, Delta Kappa Phi and Nu Beta Tail are 
available at their respective fraternity houses. 



General Information 23 

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. 

Guidance and 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. 



24 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

The Placement Officer arranges for all on-campus interviews and 
helps both the visiting officials and the students to get the most out of 
such on-campus interviews. The graduate can also find 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.

The Business Management Club was formed in May of 1961. Its 
membership is comprised solely of Junior and Senior majors in Manage- 
ment who are interested in broadening their business background. The 
relatively small size of this group makes it possible to hold numerous 
informal group discussions, as well as luncheon meetings with prominent 
local business leaders. 

In its first year, the club was selected to organize and coordinate 
the activities of the Area Opportunity Employment Conferences in con- 
junction with the Placement Office and the Department of Business Admin- 
istration. Since that time the club has sought National affiliation with 
both the American Management Association and the Society for the

preciation and need for applying to their lives the precepts of the Protes- 
tant Faith. 

Student Council 

This is a body of elected representatives from each of the four 
classes, and one faculty representative. Its purpose is to study problems 
of the student body, class activities, and the various matters of student 
organization. The council represents the student body in proposing changes 
or making recommendations to the college authorities. 

Tech Talk 

Tech Talk is the official student publication on campus. It is 
managed and published solely by student effort. A faculty member is 
appointed by the administration to act as an advisor to the group. This 
publication appears monthly and it is supported in greater part by a 
portion of the student's activities fee. The purpose of this publication 
is to make available to the student body a channel for expression and 
information. 

ATHLETICS 

The New Bedford Institute of Technology, its administration and 
faculty, approve and encourage a full program of intercollegiate and 
intramural athletics. The Athletic Council plans and provides for the 
fullest possible program of intraclass and intrafraternity sports. This 
organization, composed of representatives of both the Board of Trustees 
and the faculty, also determines athletic policies, budgets for each sport 
and approval of all sport schedules. 

Varsity teams include baseball, basketball, tennis and soccer. The 
Institute schedules for its games most of the recognized colleges within 
its athletic class. The Institute is an active member of the National 
Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and of the Southern New England 
Coastal Conference.

RESEARCH FOUNDATION 

In May, 1957, the Massachusetts State Legislature authorized the 
establishment of the New Bedford Institute of Technology Research 
Foundation. This Foundation marks a recognition of the excellent facil- 
ities and personnel available at the Institute to aid private industry and 
governmental organizations in the fields of Business Administration, Chem- 
istry, Engineering and Textiles. 

The aims of the Foundation are to cooperate with groups such as 
those mentioned above and to aid them by conducting research, develop- 
ment, and consulting programs. The Foundation also serves to further 
the knowledge of its research staff and to utilize this knowledge, both 
practically and theoretically, in meeting successfully the aims and objec- 
tives of the Foundation. 

During the past few years research projects have been completed 
for the U. S. Army Research Command, Borne Chemical Co. of New 
Jersey, Owens Corning Fiberglas Corp., Bristol Research Associates and 
Aerovox Corp. All testing and analysis work performed by the various 
professors is now channeled through the Foundation. 

Recent research contracts negotiated and now in full operation are 
"Study of the Scallop and Flounder Industry" a $90,000 Contract. This 
contract is being processed by the Business Administration Department 
and Mechanical Engineering Department for the Area Redevelopment Ad- 
ministration, United States Dept. of Commerce of the U. S. Government. 

Also "Study of Fiberglas Yarn and Blends" a $5,000 contract with 
Owens Corning Fiberglas Corp. This contract is being processed by the 
Textile Engineering Department.

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. 

The Alumni Association maintains an up-to-date file of all gradu- 
ates. Each month during the academic year every alumnus receives a 
News-Letter that brings him the latest information about the Institute 
and the activities of the alumni. At the end of May each year, the Alumni 
Association has an Alumni Reunion Weekend to which alumni come 
from far and near to renew acquaintances and see at firsthand the progress 
being made at Tech. 

Further information can be obtained by contacting James F. 
Flanagan '47, Secretary, at the New Bedford Institute of Technology.

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 offered 
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 today con- 
stitutes an important and significant part of collegiate instruction." 

In recognition of these facts, the Board of Trustees at the Institute 
voted in 1958 to add to the curricula a complete program in Business 
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 Administration to all 
students who complete the four years of prescribed study. 

The Business Administration curriculum offered at the Institute re- 
flects the increasing awareness in industry of the fact that merely technically- 
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 curric- 
ulum incorporates the standard adoption by the American Association of 
Collegiate Schools of Business that at least forty per cent of the total hours 



Undergraduate Courses of Study 37 

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 admin- 
istration. Its specific objective will be the education 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 year fundamental 
courses in English, mathematics, accounting, physical and social sciences, 
and a basic course in economics are required. After completion of the 
year, students are permitted a choice of three major fields for continuing 
study: 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 provid- 
ing proper guidance in the selection of his major field, a matter of primary 
importance. 

Accounting 

The need for personnel trained in the skillful application of account- 
ing principles has become increasingly apparent in all lines of industry and 
business. The accurate interpretation of financial reports and the necessity 
for efficiency as well as competence in record keeping for business are 
considered of paramount importance to business management. Accounting 
is often considered the "backbone" of management. Public, private, institu- 
tion and government accounting present almost unlimited opportunities 
for the practice of the skilled accountant. Opportunities for women as well 
as men are rapidly increasing. 

Marketing 

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

The marketing program provides specialized training in the tech- 
nicalities of buying as well as selling. Market research, government 
regulation of business, taxation, insurance and management principles 
are included in addition to the required core curriculum. 

Management 

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

CHEMISTRY 



Chemistry is the study of matter, its properties and transformations. 
Since all manufacturing industries must start with some form of matter for 
the fabrication of their finished products, the science of chemistry is funda- 
mental 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 pro- 
duced 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 sif- 
ficient 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 instruc- 



42 



New Bedford Institute of Technology 



tion 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 with a common freshman year program.

ENGINEERING 

The electrical and mechanical engineering curricula recognize the 
technical and social responsibilities that each graduate must accept on 
entering the engineering profession. The Technical goal of our engineer- 
ing program is the preparation for the performance of the functions of 
analysis and creative design, or the function of production or operations ; 
this requires a mastery of the fundamental scientific and mathematical 
principals associated with engineering. The social goal includes the de- 
velopment of leadership, the inculcation of a deep sense of professional 
ethics, and an understanding of the evolution of society and of the impact 
of technology on it.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING 

The expansion in the electrical engineering field continues at an 
explosive rate. Areas such as computation, guidance and control, and 
automation, which only yesterday were considered new are today a 
definite integral part of the held. In communications the advances have 
received good coverage so that the general public is quite aware of the 
strides being made. Consider, for example, television, space communica- 
tions, and lasers. Among other technologies that are developing and hav- 
ing their impact in the electrical engineering field are thin-film, cryogenet- 
ics, bionics, and plasma dynamics. 

In order to meet the challenge of the present and to be prepared 
to face the unpredictable future, the Electrical Engineering Department 
adopted a curriculum balanced between the mathematics and basic sciences, 
and the engineering sciences and professional subjects. The laboratory 
program, described in the course description section of this bulletin, is 
not course-oriented but emphasizes the inter-relationship of the various 
disciplines of engineering.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING 

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

In each industry there are several functions which the mechanical 
Engineer may perform. He may be assigned to general research and de- 
velopment involving such topics as experimental stress analysis, heat trans- 
fer in propulsion and guidance systems, exotic new metals and problems 
in miniaturization. He may be employed in the design of machinery for 
use in manufacturing processes and plants. He may be engaged in the 
construction of machinery and in the production of goods or with plant 
efficiency and problems of management. The mechanical engineer may find 
opportunities in sales engineering. 

The Mechanical Engineering curriculum provides its students with 
a sound foundation in mathematics and science. It is designed to maintain 
a proper balance between the fundamental sciences, the socio-humanistic 
studies, and the basic engineering and technological subjects. Although 
there is little time for specialization, some flexibility is provided in the 
senior year by means of elective courses. A laboratory program supports 
the areas of materials, metallurgy, manufacturing processes, fluids, thermo- 
dynamics, and machine design.

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 popula- 
tion 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 de- 
mands 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. Starting sal- 
aries in the textile industry are comparable to those of any other major 
industry. Ambitious and alert college graduates will find excellent oppor- 
tunities 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. 



Undergraduate Courses of Study 53 

Two programs are offered, leading to the Bachelor of Science 
degree. 

Textile Technology 

The curriculum in Textile Technology is designed to prepare stu- 
dents to become competent textile technologists for eventual supervisory, 
administrative, or executive positions within the industry and related 
fields. This curriculum also provides a sound background for careers in 
sales and technical services. The main concern of this program is to ac- 
quaint 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 technology of dye- 
ing and printing. The student is also acquainted with the properties, char- 
acteristics, uses, types, and availability of all textile fibers, natural or man- 
made. In the interest of a student's well balanced education, the academic 
courses in this program include an effective content of business manage- 
ment studies together with the recommended percentage of socio-humanistic 
studies as related to a program of engineering type education. 

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 textures 
now require an expanded technical knowledge on the part of those con- 
cerned with the artistic and functional elements of textile materials. 

The Textile Design and Fashion curriculum at the Institute offers 
the student instruction in design, drawing, painting and the history of art 
as the principal subjects during the Freshman year. The latter years are 
concerned with such courses as applied textile design, theories and prac- 
tical 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 ex- 
ecute 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, 
history, economics and literature are included in the curriculum.

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 findings 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. 

Admission 

Following are the admission requirements and conditions neces- 
sary for eligibility to the Graduate School : 

The applicant must have received a Bachelor of Science 
degree in an appropriate field from an institution recog- 
nized by the Institute. 

An average grade of "B" or better in the undergraduate 
major is required. 

All graduate candidates must designate a major field; no 
unclassified students will be admitted to the Institute. 
Admission will be to full graduate standing only. No 
provisional or special students will be admitted to graduate 
courses. 

Application Procedure 

A student interested in graduate studies at the Institute should 
file an application with the Director of the Graduate School. Applica- 
tions may be obtained from the Business Office of the Institute. 

Applicants should also : 

File an application by the first of May preceding the fall 
term in which the applicant wishes to enroll. 



58 New Bedford Institute of Technology 

Send directly to the Director of the Graduate School two 
letters of reference from persons qualified to judge the ap- 
plicant's ability to carry on graduate work. 

Have official transcripts of all undergraduate records (and 
graduate, if any) sent to the Director of the Graduate 
School by the institutions previously attended. The con- 
tent, credit hours and semesters related to each subject 
taken must also be included. This information must be 
received at the Institute no later than the first of May pre- 
ceding the fall term in which the applicant wishes to enroll.

DESCRIPTION OF COURSES 

Department of Electrical Engineering 

Laboratory Course Descriptions 

A five semester sectional laboratory course is provided to develop 
an ability for engineering investigation of electrical equipment in gen- 
eral. Recognition and understanding of limitations of performance of com- 
mon equipment found in the field forms an important basis. In addition 
students acquire a knowledge of the techniques of electrical measurement 
and analytical report writing. The laboratory course is distinct from the 
lecture courses in Electrical Engineering. Each section of the course pro- 
vides a sequence of experiments, progressively requiring an increase in 
scientific background. Experiments are carefully selected to allow the 
most complete coverage of general course material, based upon the order 
of lecture material completed. In addition, provision is made in the senior 
year for the development of individual student projects of an investiga-
