I especially like the last point. If the professors are required to be P.E.s, it seems more likely to turn out valid degree holding engineers, and head them in the direction to get their own license as well. Although, I'm sure there will be backlash from employers when it comes to the cost of employing at least one P.E. in each firm. I know lots of engineers who do hold valid degrees, up to MS at least, and are not working in the field where they hold the degree and have the formal education. But they have top jobs making very good money. And they are good at their jobs, even though they learned from experience rather than school. I guess some play a little loose with the rules, but it may be changing, albeit slowly.
