Comments are made on the undergraduate engineering curriculum and on graduate education, and the need is noted for continuing education programs to help executive development and maintain currency in one's specialty. The university has the potential to conduct advanced technical and managerial programs based on research. However, the role of technology transfer is new to the university program. The faculty needs incentives to perform continuing education, and the programs need seed money and marketing. University-directed continuing education programs should be focused on programs with considerable academic content, that require interaction with university faculty, that need university facilities, and that profit from the interaction and experience of participants. Industry support and advice is essential for the conduct of such education. Such a successful program is that of the Texas A&M Construction Executive Program which combines university commitment and experience with strong industry support.
