Innovation may be the most significant development to emerge from today's engineering education. In addition to changes brought about by the computer, microelectronics, and solid-state technologies, engineering schools are being affected by the contemporary climate of social awareness and immediate concerns for environmental quality and real-world training. Almost invariably, a new educational program will be interdisciplinary and/or interactive, in some way, with a realistic segment of our society, whether it be industry, government, or some social institution. The systems boys must literally be besides themselves!
