Geeks and Chiefs: Engineering Education at MIT

From: MIT World Newsletter (email) volume 6 number 38 June 1, 2007

MIT World has a video of a talk by Yossi Sheffi, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Engineering Systems, and the Director of the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics.  In his talk, he discusses making changes to the MIT engineering curriculum in order to make engineers “world-class experts” and “world-class leaders”.  You can watch the video here (http://mitworld.mit.edu/video/449/)

This talk is sponsored by the Engineering Systems Division at MIT.
