Engineering is the bridge between the sciences and humanities. Engineers apply scientific principles to advance the human condition. Their success relies as much upon an understanding of physics and math as an appreciation of history and psychology.
Unfortunately through the last decade we have seen number of engineering students declined in our country and the trend is similar worldwide. It is going to take a great deal of effort to change the trend. But engineering is the quintessential liberal education for the technologically driven world in which we live. So as a nation we must pursue the goal of excelling in the domain of science and engineering to achieve better position in world order.
