Abstract

A random group of seventeen National Association of Industrial Technology affiliated Midwestern colleges and universities as surveyed to determine competitive (market) pay salary levels and to obtain concepts for funding faculty salary increases for individuals in Industrial Technology and Engineering Technology programs. Salary levels were evaluated and it was determined that only the full professor rank obtained a statistical significance of p = .004 when a one-way ANOVA test was conducted between institutions who use competitive pay against those who do not. Principle funding methods included unionization of faculty, legislative action, tuition increases, and tying applied technology and engineering programs for competitive pay benchmarking to organizations such as AAUP, ASEE, CUPA-HR, and NAIT.
