Although I do agree that the total credit hours should not be reduced, I do disagree that just because someone obtains their M.S.C.E. that they will be a "better" engineer.
Straight on. What makes a better engineer is communications and organizational skills and the ability to deal with ambiguity--not things that are taught to MS candidates. Moreover you don't learn these things with 'designing' undersea habitats for senior projects or building entries for Sunrayce, no matter how much fun you're having.
