     You will probably find few if any engineers using Mathematica.  
     Perhaps some researchers or scientists.  I took a Numerical
     class at Long Beach State two years ago and we used Mathematica.
     even bought the manual.  You will find that 90 percent or better
     engineering calculations are strictly algebra.  What engineers
need is 
     a program that replicates the way engineers do hand calcs.  That
is, a 
     free format for input and an output that shows the "live"
formulas so 
     they can be checked by others.  Best bet for this type of
software is

As part of Wolfram Research's continuing efforts to enhance the
utility of
Mathematica in engineering practice and education, I have been given
the task
of understanding as much as possible about technical software usage
in the
engineering community. As a result, I'd very much like to know
whether you
currently use Mathematica, and if not, what kind of software, if any,
use for calculation, analysis, modeling or visualization. I would
also be
very grateful for any suggestions you might have about Mathematica
its role in the engineering community.

Thank you very much for your help.
