The Goals Report as Viewed by the Practicing Engineer - Goals of Engineering Education 680451
The Goals Report together with its substantial number of supporting documents is an excellent study of engineering education as it is today and as it is likely to evolve in the next 10 to 20 years.
The philosophy of its many findings and recommendations can be expressed in three broad areas of recommended change. They are:
Bachelor's degree programs should be liberalized.
Graduate work at all levels will continue to expand.
Continuing education of one sort or other will be the habit and expectation of most practicing engineers.
Supporting these three basic concepts are many detailed analyses and recommendations. The full report is recommended reading for all engineers and the author presents the opinions of a practicing engineer with respect to the basic recommendations.
