Abstract

The Engineering Resource Center, established in 1986, exists to serve the university, citizens, and industry in South Dakota. The collection is composed of material generated by programs within the Engineering Resource Center: Office of Remote Sensing, South Dakota Space Grant Consortium, South Dakota Local Transportation Assistance Program, University/Industry Technology Service, Publications, and Essential Networking and Training for Entrepreneurship.

Historical Note

The Engineering Resource Center, established in 1986, exists to serve the university, citizens, and industry in South Dakota. Complementary outreach and/or technology transfer programs combine to make up the center. Thus, the knowledge gained from one program often supports or strengthens another program. The programs are: 1) Engineering Extension; 2) Office of Remote Sensing; 3) South Dakota Space Grant Consortium; 4) South Dakota Local Transportation Assistance Program; 5) University/Industry Technology Service; 6) Manufacturing Extension Partnership; and 7.) Essential Networking and Training for Entrepreneurship.

The Engineering Resource Center may undertake projects directly or use project teams composed of students, university faculty, and non-university experts. These teams may be discipline-specific or interdisciplinary. The center has an on-line expertise database to identify potential faculty and industrial consultants. Another database contains information on the manufacturers and processors in South Dakota.

Arrangement

This collection in arranged into six series:

Series 1. General records

Series 2. Office of Remote Sensing

Series 3. South Dakota Space Grant Consortium

Series 4. South Dakota Local Transportation Assistance Program

Series 5. University/Industry Technology Service

Series 6. Essential Networking and Training for Entrepreneurship Program [ENTRE]

Contents Note

This collection is composed of material generated by programs within the Engineering Resource Center: Office of Remote Sensing, South Dakota Space Grant Consortium, South Dakota Local Transportation Assistance Program, University/Industry Technology Service, Publications, and Essential Networking and Training for Entrepreneurship.

Series 1. General records.

The General Records consist of items published by the Engineering Resource Center. Folders contain newsletters and a faculty expertise directory.

Series 2. Office of Remote Sensing.

The Office of Remote Sensing was established in 1969 as the Remote Sensing Institute. Senator Karl Mundt was instrumental in bringing the program to South Dakota. It is funded by both state and federal funds. Its purpose is to use multispectral remotely sensed imagery and geographic information systems for natural resource studies and mapping projects in South Dakota and throughout the world. This series is composed of correspondence, newsletters, brochures, reports, photogrammetry images and pocket stereoscopes. The pocket stereoscopes are used in reading the photogrammetry, or aerial photographs.

Series 3. South Dakota Space Grant Consortium.

The South Dakota Space Grant Consortium is a program funded in part by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Consortium members are South Dakota State University, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Augustana College and the EROS Data Center. Goals of the Consortium are to create an enthusiasm for aerospace science among students and faculty and to encourage them to pursue careers in related fields. This series is composed of newsletters, research award announcements, and applications and information pertaining to faculty, graduate and undergraduate assistantship awards.

Series 4. South Dakota Local Transportation Assistance Program.

The South Dakota Local Transportation Assistance Program assists local governments with technology and information needed to operate their transportation related agencies. This series is composed of newsletters, brochures, catalogs, and special bulletins.

Series 5. University/Industry Technology Service.

The University/Industry Technology Service links university resources to industry, business and government to solve technological problems and enhance economic development in South Dakota. This series consists of brochures and programs from symposiums hosted by the University/Industry Technology Service.

Series 6. Essential Networking and Training for Entrepreneurship Program [ENTRE].

The Essential Networking and Training for Entrepreneurship [ENTRE] program provides training for people who may have an interest in pursuing entrepreneurial opportunities. This is an intensive 10-session course that allows participants to test and research their business ideas. The mission of ENTRE is to foster and promote entrepreneurship and economic development in the state and to develop programs for the general business community or various specialty groups. This series consists of a newsletter and a brochure outlining the ENTRE program.
