Sayfa 19 - ... broad and general cultivation prior to, and forming the foundation of, the subsequent professional training is well defined, and the ultimate nature of the case in engineering is precisely the same as that in law or medicine. By means of a liberal training the requisite powers of observation and a sound judgment are more symmetrically developed and far more accurately applied in consequence of truer conceptions of the object on which they are brought to bear, and a correspondingly enhanced power...
Sayfa 313 - ... these laboratories are the following : — First. To give the students practice in such experimental work as any engineer is constantly liable to be called upon to perform in the practice of his profession; as boiler tests, engine tests, power determinations, etc. Second. To give the students some experience in carrying on original investigations in engineering subjects with such care and accuracy as to render the results of real value to the engineering community. Third. By publishing from time...
Sayfa 50 - To him they are but little more than striking instances of how completely the most simple facts may be buried out of sight under heaps of mathematical rubbish.
Sayfa 21 - ... and wellrounded product of the ideal education in engineeering. The writer unhesitatingly places, therefore, as the first and fundamental requisite in the ideal education of young engineers, a broad liberal education in philosophy and arts, precedent to the purely professional* training." * * * * * * "The complete and satisfactory discharge of such functions cannot, from their very nature be accomplished on a bare possession of technical knowledge. This is, indeed, essential, but it is just as...

Sayfa 19 - ... paper properly placed in the lead of a series of well written papers on Engineering Education, bound in the first volume of this Society's proceedings, and read before Division E. of the International Engineering Congress held at Chicago in 1893: "In the older learned professions this sequence of broad and general cultivation prior to, and forming the foundation of, the subsequent professional training is well defined, and the ultimate nature of the case in engineering is precisely the same as...
Sayfa 1 - Bonney, president of the World's Congress Auxiliary of the World's Columbian Exposition, declares : same religious liberty which is enjoyed under the Constitution of the United States, alike by natives and by foreign-born, by Roman Catholic, Protestant, Jew, and all others.
