SAUOER Oivn organisation Technologists part of professional team Engineering technologists, an essential part of the industry team, are organized into a so- ciety by wich their standards can be measured. The Alberta Society of En- gineering Technologists was es- tablished in 1962 with the co- operation of the Association of Professional Engineers. Geol- ogists and Geophysicists of Al- berta. This society works closely with employers in the industry and supplies them with infor- mation concerning engineering technologists in Alberta. Each year it surveys its members and publishes infor- mation regarding salaries paid. Comparisons with other prov- inces are also published. ASET provides industry with a standard by which engineer- ing technicians and technolo- gists can be measured both within an employer's operation and In the operation of those companies with which the em- ployer deals. Engineering technologists are i part of the engineering team a concept which is presently re- ceiving a great deal of atten- tion from business, industry and educators. Engineering teams are pools of technical tal- ent within a company which consist of professional engin- eers, engineering technologists and engineering technicians. Together these people form a technical team that is proving to be a strong force in the mod- ern, fluid, manpower market. ASET is involved with help- ing employers get maximum productivity from this technical team. It offers information to employers on team flexibility, member specialization and ad- vice on how to use the team to its full potential.
