Engineering Schools Respond to Financial CrisisSerial Information: Civil Engineering—ASCE, 1982, Vol. 52, Issue 7, Pg. 58-61
Document Type: Feature article
A mail survey of the 200-plus civil engineering departments at engineering schools asked each chairman for a case history of response to the financial and other crises facing the departments. The article reports on what six different schools have done. Types of responses to the crisis include: build links with construction industry; establish endowed chairs; limit undergraduate enrollment; use ABET accreditation visit as lever to get more money; introduce intern PhD and coop PhD; establish an Engineering Advisory Council made up of corporate presidents—people with enough clout attract big dollars from the state legislature and from industry.
