Military Recruiters Seek Technicians
The U.S. armed services need recruits with strong backgrounds in engineering, members of the Association of Military Colleges and Schools were told last month at their annual meeting in Charleston, S.C.
Representatives of the Navy said they hoped to fill 80 percent of their openings for new officers with candidates who have engineering backgrounds. And the Air Force is seeking engineers for 85 percent of its officer openings.
The association, which held its 66th meeting on the campus of The Citadel, represents 42 schools.
