IS ENGINEERING EDUCATION ENOUGH? (THE PROBLEM OF INTERDISCIPLINARY EDUCATION)

The present paper searches for a coordinated approach and analyzes in a preliminary form the need for interdisciplinary knowledge of legal, engineering and economic aspects, leading to the acronym of LEGENOMY. In response to this need, the rudimentary structures of different interdisciplinary curricula are developed, with prime emphasis either on engineering or on economics or on law, and with secondary emphasis on the two remaining aspects. Plans are outlined as to how such educational concepts can be tailored to the Navy's needs, and incorporated into the existing educational efforts, in order to develop systematically a new elite of Government professionals.
