I agree. At Cal Poly SLO we were required to take a 1 unit sketching class, and all 2nd year design labs right alongside the architectural students. My interest in both mathematics and art led me into Structural engineering to begin with, and I took some art classes at the junior college in my home town. All this has been invaluable in enabling me to think in three dimensions and to communicate my solutions effectively. Another thing I think should be required is that all structural engineering students work on at least 2 construction projects! The practical aspects of constructability are not addressed sufficiently in engineering education. Joyce Fuss, S.E.

All: Training of structural engineers should include courses in art and free hand drawing. when I taught structural engineering courses I often said: "Think with your fingers"
