Abstract:

To date, an accurate estimating technique or forecasting model has not been developed to determine the number of engineers needed for entry into AFIT Master of Science degree programs in order to fill validated requirements within the Civil Engineering career field, Air Force Specialty Code AFSC 55XX. This thesis identifies important variables such as requirements, inputs, demand, and retention which affect AFIT MS degree quotas. The variables were used to develop a model that can determine quotas for officers entering MS degree programs. An accuracy rating of better than 97 percent was obtained on the model. In addition, it was determined through statistical tests that obtaining an MS degree enhanced the retainability of Civil Engineering Officers. Author
