There has been a growing feeling, among engineers and educators alike, that there is a need at this time for a re-evaluation of the principles and goals of engineering education. This is due, in part, to the rapid progress of science and engineering in recent decades, necessitating a revision of our system of education along lines which will better serve society, the profession, and the engineer. In the fall of 1944, at the request of Dr. W. L. Everitt, eighteen I.R.E. Sections held scheduled meetings to discuss methods of improving engineering education. The reports submitted to Dr. Everitt's Committee on Education contained many valuable suggestions. The principal recommendations are summarized in this paper.
