Abstract : Science and engineering manpower needs can be met if the large numbers of students now enrolled in engineering programs are effectively trained and employed. Certain temporary problems, such as the shortfall in the number of PhD - level engineers needed for teaching, can be solved by judicious applications of resources. Export control regulations continue to pose a problem for the university researcher, in part, because of the large uncertainty as to what is militarily sensitive. DoD can alleviate this problem by negotiating with university representatives a mutually acceptable set of guidelines for dissemination of research information considered sensitive. Publication of a new unclassified version of the Militarily Critical Technologies would aid the process. (Author)
