The Education of a Structural Engineer. Present Methods of Teaching

In Mr. H. H. Clapham’s paper on the “ Education of a Structural Engineer,” published in this Journal(pp. 301-311) there is an appalling list (p. 304) of subjects which the student should master, and an equally terrifying list of things of which he should have some considerable knowledge. Of course, the student who could carry through the programme has not yet been born; but if we examine it carefully we shall find that nothing has been included that it is really desirable to omit. With the most careful pruning of syllabuses the poor student must be in grave danger of mental indigestion. W.G. Sheppard
