This paper presents the radical view that training manpower to satisfy the needs of industry or government is not the purpose of engineering education. Rather, the focus is the individual student, his needs, his development, his fulfillment. Often the needs of the individual are not compatible with the needs of the corporation or of government; in such cases the latter should yield. The curriculum should be designed with this outlook.
