Therefore, the needs of society related to engineering education and practice require critical examination and consideration. A variety of sources provide data for this next section on societal needs. These data are extremely valuable in understanding where value has been delivered from the academy to the engineering student graduate to engineering practice to society and are arranged by the same themes, systems, sustainability and ethics competency. Society’s Need for Systems Competency. Although Industrial and Systems Engineering have relied upon systems thinking as a basic competency, systems competency is now more widely called for within in all fields, including engineering.

This chapter has explored some, but not all, data sets expressing concern for present gaps in mechanical engineering education. Nonetheless, the problems highlighted are worthy starting points for driving improvement as depicted in Figure 2-4. The points of improvement, derived from the data sets in this chapter along with the scenario work in Chapter One, provide guidance to the academy in terms of where gaps exist. This is a substantial point because there is much that is working well in mechanical engineering education and the entire system does not need to be, nor should it be, totally Mechanical Engineering In The Future 35 Points of improvement Student 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% Industry Ethics competency Faculty Systems competency Sustainability competency Figure 2-4 Points of improvement in planning for the ­future of mechanical engineering education.
