Truman Lecture Series: Re-Engineering the Engineering Education - May 2008
Sand Number: SAND2008-2498P Responding to a bipartisan request of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, the national Academies conducted an assessment of America’s competitive position in the emerging global economy. The effort, known as the Gathering Storm study, concluded that America’s ability to compete for jobs in the future and its ability to meet many of the challenges confronting the nation will be highly dependent upon the country’s prowess in science and engineering. It is the contention of our speaker, Norm Augustine, that the rapidly evolving environment affecting the nation and the engineering profession demands significant changes in the manner in which engineers are educated. Many of these changes will run contrary to the historical context in which engineers have been produced and are not without controversy. The pros and cons of one set of proposed changes will be discussed.
