A brief overview of the crisis in engineering education is presented to provide background for discussion of more severe problems in electrical and computer engineering departments. Guidelines for allocating resources to improve the situation are presented. Areas addressed include the following: faculty/student ratios, faculty pay, faculty support (travel and secretarial), graduate student stipends, laboratory equipment, and technical support. It is noted that the suggested levels are not optimum or ideal, but represent reasonable levels of resources for operating adequate programs. Institutions heavily involved in research or committed to nationally recognized excellence will need additional resources.
