How three universities are keeping up with changes in engineering
The world of technology is constantly changing, and schools need to follow suit to prepare future engineers. And university students are becoming more concerned about addressing the needs of society and are demanding a more well-rounded education. That’s what the deans of three New York City engineering universities had to say during the Changing Face of Engineering panel hosted by the Association for a Better New York and Google on 11 March at the company’s New York office. Deans Gilda Barabino of the City College of New York Grove School of Engineering, Mary C. Boyce of Columbia’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, and Jelena Kovačević of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering were the speakers.
