Engineers in industry have complained frequently about the kind of engineering education that takes place in colleges today. Engineers in academe are quick to defend their accomplishments and poke holes in the arguments of their detractors. Much of the current debate centers around two proposals. The National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) has issued a call for ¿professional schools of engineering¿ that are ¿independent¿ (see box on p. 54).
