Debate on Engineering Education

A new departure in the annals of the Institution was inaugurated at a meeting held on Thursday, April 28, 1927, in the Institution’s meeting hall, 10, Upper Belgrave Street, S. W.l, when the problem of the education of structural engineers was debated. The President (Mr. H. J. Deane) was in the chair. The motion before the meeting-proposed by Professor J. Husband, M.Eng., M.In-st.C.E. (Member of Council), and opposed by Mr. Ewart S. Andrews, B.Sc., M.1nst.C.E. (Vice-President)was :- “That the system of education of structural engineers by articled pupilage is contrary to the best interests of the student, and should be superseded by education in recognised engineering schools.”
