5.0 out of 5 starsGreat read for Engineering Students/Graduates & Especially Professors

The authors suggest that the only way to improve college level learning...is to start a revolution at the grassroots involving faculty and student. As a student this book is an inspirational read. To read this book as a student in the engineering field it is wonderfully layed out and shows the true value of the type of education you are receiving from your instituition. This idea is bolstered by research on change and other authors who suggest top down changes do not take hold. Colleges have no reason to change their structure or focus as long as athletics and rankings keep bringing in resources.

I have personally seen the "Olin Effect" and am astonished how undergraduate engineering students, who have experienced the education methods described in this book, really get what it is to be an engineer and are able be acquire knowledge well beyond their training to accomplish tasks. I would recommend this book for any educator and any parent who has a high school student looking to enroll in an engineering college.
5.0 out of 5 starsFantastic book. Recommended for anyone interested in technology, education, innovation, and change.

In this book, Goldberg and Somerville tells an emotional story of a group of educators challenging the established culture of engineering education. The timely vision of the "whole new engineer" described in this book resonate with me deeply as an engineer, an educator, and a human being. It is my hope and my belief that this book really does signal the coming of a revolution that will not only transform engineering and education, but also technology and society as we know it.
It is a five-star recommendation for anyone interested in technology, education, innovation, and change.
