75 75 The First Professional Degree in Engineering

76 76 Background l IEEE was requested to provide its official position on the First Professional Degree in Engineering l Possible designations l A Bachelor of Science or equivalent l Four-year program l A Master of Science or equivalent l A Bachelor-plus l E.g. B.Sc. Plus 30 semester credits So far no similar request to re-consider Engineering Technology

77 77 Main Arguments For Exceeding the B.Sc. Requirement l Increase in the volume of required knowledge needed for engineering practice l This is the essential argument of the US NAE l Comparison of bodies of knowledge required by practitioners in Medicine and Law to that required by Engineering l And differences in professional status l Changes in the mainstream engineering degree structure in Europe l The Bologna Declaration l The positions of ASCE and NAE

78 78 Main Arguments Against Exceeding the B.Sc. Requirement l No demand for a change from the field l No pressure from industry l No complaints on deficiencies with respect to public welfare or safety l Change would increase barriers of entry into engineering l May decrease the propensity of young people to choose engineering as a career path l Change would disrupt the engineering profession l Change is fostered by a registration/licensing system that has already lost its relevancy

79 79 How IEEE will Consider the Matter l Discussion by APC, EAB and the Board in February 2007 l In the EAB meeting, two presentations, pro/con l Distribution of two position papers l Will appear in The Institute in September 2007 l Comment period l Subsequent discussion in November 2007 l Target date for IEEE position is late 2007/early 2008

80 80 Next steps… l Discussion of The Institute insert with CTAA l Review of feedback from the membership by Mid October 2007 l Report to the IEEE BoD in November 2007
