Dean demands changes in engineering education
Electronics design has changed in fundamental ways, but engineering education is much as it was 30 years ago, charged Raman Unnikrishnan, dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science at CSUF. Unnikrishnan said engineers face a future where old, pat answers to familiar problems won't work. He contrasted curricula that instilled a narrow range of skills to a new curriculum that teaches problem-solving. To do this, Unnikrishnan proposed an education program that began with basic educational requirements and then moved on to add basic knowledge in software, nanoelectronics, biological sciences and systems thinking.
