STEVENS PRESIDENT CALLS ON CLINTON ADMINISTRATION FOR NEW ECONOMIC AND TECHNOLOGY POLICY DURING UNIVERSITY'S 121ST COMMENCEMENT

 HOBOKEN, N.J., May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Stevens Institute of Technology President Harold J. Raveche, presiding over the university's 121st commencement today, called on the Clinton Administration for a strategic economic and technology policy that will bolster manufacturing jobs for the United States.
 Raveche called for the federal government to support critical technologies that spur industrial growth. He cited a recent study that reveals the new administration's current policy, when implemented, will reduce manufacturing jobs in the United States by 594,000 by 1997.
 Raveche questioned whether the United States has a plan to make up for the Department of Defense's 40-year track record of implementing cutting edge technology, which has resulted in economically significant spin-offs such as aerospace and telecommunications. Stevens' sixth president asked the Clinton Administration to consider economic development state-by-state because of regional challenges to industrial growth.
 Prior to his remarks, Raveche conferred honorary doctor of engineering degrees on Norman R. Augustine, chairman and chief executive officer of Martin Marietta Corp., and Raymond W. Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of Bell Atlantic Corp., at the ceremony. Acceptance remarks by Augustine and Smith covered innovation and the technical imagination.
 The commencement marked Stevens' ongoing cooperation with industry and the university's focus on educating versatile, problem-solving engineers.
 Bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in engineering, science, computer science, management and humanities were conferred on more than 850 men and women. About 260 individuals received bachelor's degrees; 550 received master's degrees, and 35 were awarded doctorates. Nine men and women received both bachelor's and master's degrees.
 Darshana Dadhania of Succasunna, N.J., Falk Feddersen of New York City, Alan Perese of Allendale, N.J., and Lip Seng Wang of Hoboken, N.J., earned perfect 4.0 grade point averages and shared the honor of graduating first in the class. All received special recognition during the ceremony from Raveche and the Stevens board of trustees.
 Established in 1870, Stevens offers baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral degrees in engineering, science, computer science, and management, and a baccalaureate degree in the humanities. The college has a total enrollment of about 1,400 undergraduate students and about 2,200 graduate students.
