A QUESTION FOR STUDENTS AND FACULTY MEMBERS What is CEE faculty trying to teach? What will CEE students need to know? Student comments:  Where I worked we only needed to plug into the right formula. I’ll never need to derive anything. I won’t need to know any theory. Will it be adequate in our professional lives to just know how to use the formulas and tables? In a job situation think of two  types  of engineers: I.   Can employ equations they studied in school, or can be found  in textbooks and handbooks, to calculate various design values.  (Cookbook engineering.  Plug and chug) II.   Has a grasp on problems and how things hang together, knows that theory/equations are appropriate in various situations and their limitations, so that they can direct others to solve  a wide range of usual as well as new and unusual problems. Who gets paid more?
