Robert C. Seamans, Jr., director of ERDA, the Energy Research and Development Administration, told the Texas A&M Research Foundation that the nation's colleges and universities must graduate 3 times the current number of employed scientists and engineers by 1985 if we are to meet U.S. energy-related man power needs of the next 3 decades. The National Planning Association, according to Seamans, predicts that the federal energy research and development program alone will require some 40,000 scientists, engineers, and technicians in the coming years, or about twice as many as are currently employed.
