  8. 8. Eng’g curriculum concerns <ul><li>“ I don't know if this is under the jurisdiction of our respective college deans, but I believe the subjects in the curriculum of some courses do not do justice to the students under it. e.g. The Electronics Engineering curriculum requires 3rd Year students to take up ECE 30 (Vector Analysis) before moving on to ECE 34 (Electromagnetics). This is not true for the Electrical Engineering curriculum, for they proceed directly to Electromagnetics without prior knowledge of Vector Analysis, which is very important for ECE 34. As a result, some or most of my EE friends are having difficulties with ECE 34 while the ECE are dedicating one entire sem to study for Vector Analysis as a prerequisite to ECE 34. Wouldn't you think that's unfair?” </li></ul>
  9. 9. MBA program concerns
