Thoughts on Engineering Education and Offered Programs

Amir J. Majid

The profession of engineering is essential for the development of any region, country or society worldwide.
Engineering has played an important role in human kind progress and prosperity for the last couple of centuries.
It is therefore necessary to update engineering education and programs to cope with emerging technologies and
innovations.
In order to offer efficient and competitive engineering programs, the following thoughts and observations are
highlighted for academics and educational policy makers.

Though 1: Programs Credit Hours

Are we degrading the engineering profession by reducing number of credit hours, deleting courses; even basic
engineering and science courses, eliminating courses accompanied lab works and merging two or more courses’
contents. Many regional universities and worldwide are following this policy in order to compete in students
enrolment and intake.
