THE MICHIGAN ADAILY

Engineermg English Stirs Controversy

that through the addition of an
extra year to the engineering pro-
gram more time could be devoted
to the humanities and the social
sciences, such as the present five-
year course in which a civil engi-
neer may also receive a bachelor
of arts degree.
In 1956 the American Society
for Engineering Education pub-
lished a report of its Humanistic-
Social Research Project. Serving
on the committee which worked
on the project were Prof. Warner
G. Rice, chairman of the literary
college English department, and
Prof. Kenneth E. Boulding, of the
economics department.
Students Would Profit
The project demonstrated that
engineering students would profit
from an increased acquaintance
with the humanities and social
sciences. The committee recom-
mended that "the formulation of
objectives must be carried out
jointly by the engineering and art
faculties," and, further, that "hu-
manistic-social studies must be
distinguished from business train-
ing."
More time devoted to humani-
ties as well as to the social sci-
ences in the engineering college
would be highly beneficial, Prof.
Weeks agrees.. He chose as an
example the Massachusetts Insti-
tute of Technology, where approx-
imately 20 per cent of the four
year curriculum is devoted to
work in the humanities and the
social sciences. MIT is a leader in
the implementation of a 'new con-
cept in engineering education, he
says.
The problem or engineering
English at the University is evi-
denced in the fact that engineer-
ing faculty members say their
students cannot adequately pre-
sent their ideas on paper. Could
the literary college and the en-
gineering college work together in!
the interests of a broader or more
intense program for the engineer-
ing student, or will neither one
of the faculties have enough of a
grasp of the other's discipline to
meet on common ground?

A warrant has been issued
against Hooth, and he will be ar-
raigned Monday in municipal

Hooth, a xnember of Phi Delta

cursing at him. Huebner, who1

was just complaining audibly about
