The subject of Continuing Professional Education has received much attention recently, largely because of the current crisis in engineering unemployment. IEEE local and national management, in response to IEEE member interest, is searching for methods of implementing meaningful continuing education programs in a variety of practical situations. This paper attempts to identify some of the basic problems of engineering obsolescence, and to visualize the role of continuing engineering education as a countermeasure. It is suggested that IEEE members and local chapters themselves have an important role to fill in continuing education. A particular proposal for a program for Nuclear Science is described.
