Recent technological developments have intensified the problems of educating young people for the engineering profession. Even though these developments have given birth to many areas of study in engineering, the increasing demand for engineers has in many cases forced engineering schools to abridge, rather than lengthen, their curriculum. The responsibility of providing a lasting and meaningful engineering education to students who are on campus for the short period of four years rests solely with the instructor. Consistently distributing lecture notes, working hard and closely with his students, and displaying a clear concern for the welfare of his students are suggested as possible ways the instructor can fulfill his responsibilities.
