Jasper, M.A. ; Mississippi State Univ., MS, USA

It is noted that the mechanical arts/mechanical drawing/engineering graphics curriculum has undergone many changes since the beginnings of the American Society for Engineering Education in 1893. It is suggested that the changes which have occurred at the author's small, rural university (Mississippi State University) may perhaps reflect the changes at other engineering institutions. The impact of computing and the personal computer on the engineering graphics curriculum has been profound. The changes in the curriculum of graphic communication are recounted. A view for the future is given with emphasis on educating engineers for the world market, the sources of these new engineering students, and the sources of funds for technology development. In addition, a description of a service curriculum for engineering is presented, and strategies for recruiting and retaining engineering students for the workforce of the 21st century are discussed
