Engineering is being invaded by social engineering to ensure a better "balance" of students and guarantee that National Science Foundation proposals include "diversity" considerations. American colleges and universities still graduate well-trained engineers-to-be, but even this bastion of rigor is on the slippery slope of trading off excellence to placate the multicultural gods.
