Document Type: Journal Paper


An attempt is made to explain the estrangement felt by many practicing engineers towards current engineering education programs and to discuss the reasons for changes in such programs. In order to foster a better working relationship between education and practice, ASCE has established a Committee on Interchange Between Education and Practice. The objectives and activities of this new committee are briefly discussed. Cooperative education is considered as an outstanding example of a meaningful way to achieve a practice orientation in engineering education. The paper also serves to introduce a series of papers presented on cooperative education.
