Engineering education in general and power engineering education in particular are discussed in this paper from the point of view of the engineer being a total person with responsibilties to society and to himself. It appears that we are living in times when the relationship between society and technology is in crisis and that if adequate solutions are to be found changes in engineering education may be necessary to solve the problem. Engineering education has to address real problems in order to close the gap that has widened between academia and the practice of engineering. A macro-proposal on power engineering education is derived from discussions of the above topics and is offered here as a starting point for a thorough examination of the subject by everyone concerned.
