Dean addresses the future of engineering education

Waterloo Engineering Dean Pearl Sullivan is featured in an article about the future of engineering education in the fall issue of The Voice produced by the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers. According to Sullivan the push for change is dually fuelled by increased scientific knowledge and the drive to create ever more complex products and processes that may cut across engineering (and non-engineering) disciplines. "Students have to know math and the parameters of design even better today just to keep a plane in the air," she says in the article entitled Renaissance Plan.
