What is General Engineering (GE)?

In a comment on an earlier post Nosophorus asks "What is General Engineering?" I'm glad you asked. General Engineering is my home department and the home department of the Illinois Genetic Algorithms Laboratory (IlliGAL). General Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) goes back to 1921, when a curriculum study at the behest of Chicago-area industrialists wondered why engineering education was tilting so heavily toward technical topics and away from the business topics necessary for success. A degree program was created to balance technical topics with topics useful in business such as law and economics. Subsequently the teaching mission of a department called General Engineering Drawing was merged this degree program to form the department now known as General Engineering.

During the Cold War, the GE degree took on a systems engineering flavor, and an MS degree was added in the 70s. More recently, a PhD has been added, but a PhD in General Engineering sounded like something of an oxymoron, so the PhD offered was called Systems and Entrepreneurial Engineering (SEE). This degree is something of a cross of offerings in Management Science and Engineering (MS&E) at Stanford and the programs in the Engineering Systems Division (ESD) at MIT.

The undergraduate program in General Engineering is one of the most popular at Illinois with nearly 600 undergraduate students. The new SEE degrees have attracted applicants from around the world, and is growing rapidly. More information is available on the GE website here.

Comments:
Thank You, Dr Goldberg for the explanation about the General Engineering Course at UIUC. Before, I thought that it was some kind of general engineering education and, after the student finished the course, he could apply for any area of engineering. Here in Brazil we don't have such an undergraduate courses, only specific ones, like the course that I'm doing now, Computing Engineering, but my course has some topics outside the engineering world, like Law and Economics, and, at the same time, several hard topics, like System Analysis and Digital Signal Processing. :D

Até Mais!! (See You!!)

Hmmmmmm... What Interesting:

"Over 1/3 of our student population is female. (The College average is 17%)."

In my classroom we have no women. :( We even joke about it, cos we have a long hair friend there and we say that he is "the closest thing to a woman" that we have. :P

Just a joking. :D

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.

A friend just showed me this neat website full of religious joke
I cant believe the quantity an quality of humerous religious joke it contains
Heres one of the jokes i found on it:
Bob brought some friends home to his apartment one night after they had been out painting the town. One friend noticed a big brass gong in Bobs bedroom and asked about it."Thats not a gong" Bob replied "thats a talking clock. Watch this!"
Bob struck the gong and sure enough a voice on the other side of the wall screamed "Hey your jerk its 3 o'clock in the morning!"
