Abstract

The liberal arts model of education has been shown over time to be robust and successful. Students educated in arts, humanities, science and mathematics enter the workplace with the fundamental skills necessary for productive careers in disciplines ranging from accounting to zoology. Engineering as a general field of study offers the wide range of technical knowledge, logical training, problem solving and computer skills necessary for the future workplace.
