Hello all you professionals out there: i think it is wonderful how you all are considering the future of your profession and coming up with viable ideas to better strengthen the dynamics and practices of engineering in general and specifically within the varying disciplines. However--just a thought: it's not going to make any difference in the long run whether college/university programs 'beef up' curriculums or broaden the scope of exposure to different specialties because our children in American schools are not getting the academic basics in mathematics and sciences from the elementary through high school levels to adequately understand engineering concepts. What we have now are college students playing 'catch up' to get the knowledge and skills they should have 'mastered' in high school. Until the education process is brought up to a minimum level comparable to the basic knowledge requirements of even 30 years ago, not only will the engineering profession suffer from a lack of well-educated, well-grounded personnel--but so will all the professions in any field of applied sciences. Just my thoughts...... audra ranous
