Traditionally, engineering education tries to balance the fundamentals that engineers will need during their career and the skills that they need to start functioning as engineers upon graduation. The dynamic nature of the engineering enterprise makes it impossible and unwise to attempt to teach our students everything they need to know to function during their career
The Fundamentals An effective engineering curriculum focuses on what mechanical engineering is all about: analysis, design, and manufacture of systems of all scales. To that extent, all mathematics, science, and engineering courses relate their contents to analysis, design and manufacturing, the ultimate reason why they are part of the curriculum.

Advice for students:
To restate the obvious, their education should include a strong set of fundamentals and the recognition of the need for and the ability to continually learn.
