Abstract: Much has been written about appropriate technology (AT) and how to accomplish it. This paper adds to that literature with specific ideas for education, training and research programs and activities on appropriate technology. The intention is to estimulate education and reseach personnel and organizations to initiate and conduct programs which will help engineers to plan and design structures programs and systems which are compatible with the basic principles of AT and are environmentally and economically sound.
