A few more from recent Prisms

  • "Above the fray" by Thomas K. Grose is about how engineering schools tend to use fewer part time faculty that other disciplines and tend to rely mostly on full time, tenure stream faculty. They seem to include CS in this grouping. November.

  • "Engineering for everyone" by Bethany Halford is about efforts to create "engineering for non-engineers" courses at various institutions (Princeton is the example here) to foster greater technical literacy and appreciation for engineers & engineering. December.

  • "Answering the call" by Robert Gardner is about efforts to get high school students interested in aerospace engineering. December.
