SEAS Leadership Council convenes
The Leadership Council for the School
of Engineering met in April for what was described by Dean James
Wei as a "working seminar." Dean Wei sought input
from council members on three topics:
* Where to go
* How to get there
* What kind of leader is needed to meet the first two challenges
"Our mission is to educate future leaders," Dean
Wei said. "Our B.S.E. niche is 'engineering as liberal
education.' About one fourth of our graduates practice engineering.
The other three fourths do other things like go to law school,
medical school, or into consulting.
This means that our engineering education is a platform for
doing other things," he continued. "Princeton University
has a first-rate system for exposing our engineering students
to the liberal arts. And it gives the perfect setting for
reaching out to the A.B. students."
Reaching out to A.B. students is part of the school's mission.
Because engineering students benefit so much from their interaction
with the liberal arts side of campus, we are returning the
favor by helping liberal arts students learn about technology.
It just makes sense at Princeton."
