Narrative

The Cypress College Radiology Program faculty and Advisory Committee members request funding for the purchase of a new digital radiology unit (Item on One-Time Funding List). This unit includes an x-ray tube, digital control panel, digital image receptor, x-ray patient table, wall unit (not digital), and PACS software (picture archiving and communication system). The PACS software will allow the digital image to be sent to the current computer workstations and to the student’s personal computer so they may work with the image. We need a new radiology unit for instructional purposes as the one we currently have is broken and cannot be repaired. The manufacturer is out of business and parts needed are no longer available. Accent Medical has temporarily loaned the program an x-ray tube. In the August 28, 2015 meeting, the Radiology Department Advisory committee members were unanimous in the view that the new equipment should be digital to reflect the equipment the students work with in the hospital setting.

The unit on loan with Accent Medical is not available for the long term. In fact, it is so old and of the same manufacturer as the original unit that couldn’t be repaired. Should this tube break then the radiology department would have one live x-ray unit to support approximately 35 Intern students and 35 extern students. This will cause insufficient training for students to prepare them for hospital experience and imaging real patients. Additionally, if the x-ray unit is not replaced, then the number of students accepted to the program would have to be decreased.

For students to be successful in the clinical training portion of the program, they need to be practicing with the same type of equipment found in the hospitals. Digital radiography machines are found in all the hospitals affiliated with Cypress College. The Advisory Committee members have asked that the students be better prepared for clinical training by practicing on state of the art equipment.

Narrative

Create a new program of study focused on the employment opportunities available for music educators as Elementary School, Middle School, High School and Post-Secondary School teachers. This program will also focus on the completion of CTE certificates in music technology by currently employed Elementary School, Middle School and High School music teachers in the surrounding communities. In addition to CTE certificate completion, this program will prepare students for certifications from leading manufactures of music technology software. It will also strengthen pathways for students who earn A.A. Degrees or A.D.T Degrees in Commercial Music and transfer to California State Universities.

This program will increase the quality of current CTE programs by updating classrooms, practice rooms and the music library with industry standard software, hardware and music-teaching technologies. It will increase student access to these technologies by creating lab and library hours. Curriculum will be created and updated in order to prepare students for certifications in these technologies.

This program will increase the quantity of CTE programs by creating a Music Teacher Technology Certificate. This certificate will consist of classes in music technology and implementing music technology in the classroom.

This program will increase the number of students that will achieve successful work outcomes because an increasing number of music teaching jobs in Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, High Schools, or Post Secondary Schools require experience with music technology. Many B.A., B.M. or M.A. degrees that satisfy the requirements for these jobs do not require classes in music technology. Candidates that complete the Music Teacher Technology Certificate and the industry certifications will have a better chance of achieving successful work outcomes when seeking employment. This program will also increase successful work outcomes for currently employed music teachers who received their degrees prior to rise of music technology in the classroom.

Narrative

The goal of this project is to expand existing Engineering Technology program at Cypress College with accordance to latest technological and industrial innovations and high demand to professionals in related fields. Science, technology, engineering and math fields - commonly referred to as STEM - make up a growing portion of the American economy in general and southern California in particular. The goal of this project is to bring Cypress College in par with other 2-year colleges who have already aligned themselves with this technological movement. It will be shown throughout this report that advanced manufactory, rapid prototyping and automation has great priority in southern California and Orange County due to concentration of industrial and manufacturing sectors in this region. At this time, Cypress College’s Engineering Technology program despite being around for a long time, having access to computer labs and a full time engineering faculty, is not able to fully accommodate engineering students due lack of resources.

Through recent meeting of Discipline Input Group (DIG) for Engineering Technology that was held in Both Northern and Southern California with participation of Community Colleges offering engineering courses, three disciplines emerged as candidates for an Associate’s Degree in Engineering Technology. These disciplines are:
• Drafting Technology,
• Advanced Manufactory and
• Civil and Architectural Technologies.
With support of this program, Cypress College’s Engineering Technology will transform to an advanced technological institute providing both theory and practical skills to workforce of the future in above three disciplines.
