PROFESSIONAL TRAINING OF ENGINEERS

ENGINEERING TEACHERS FIND THAT THEY MUST TEACH MORE ANALYSIS SO THAT STUDENTS, UPON GRADUATION, MAY KEEP PACE WITH MODERN TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENTS AND THE GREATER DEMANDS MADE ON THEM. THE DANGERS OF EXCLUSIVE OVEREMPHASIS OF ANALYSIS HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED. THE DESIRABLE IDEAL OF INCLUDING IN UNDERGRADUATE COURSES A GREAT DEAL OF MODERN ANALYTICAL TECHNIQUES, WHILE STILL TEACHING ENGINEERING ATTITUDE TO DESIGN, STILL APPEARS TO BE POSSIBLE. THE ALTERNATIVE IS TO GIVE A TRAINING MORE LIKE THAT OF A SCIENTIST, BUT GRADUATES WITH AN ENGINEERING ATTITUDE ARE KNOWN TO FIT MORE QUICKLY AND USEFULLY INTO PROFESSIONAL LIFE. /AUTHOR/
