Abstract : This report reviews the present and future education of engineering students and reports that the availability of modern computing means has accelerated the use of matrix methods. It discusses matrix applications and shows how two totally dissimilar problems led to the same computational problem. Similar examples can be drawn from other fields of engineering. The ease with which the problems are handled is due to the advent of digital computing technology, and that in the future we shall see more use of these methods, even at the freshman level. Because of the ease with which tedious calculations can be accomplished, problems of large extent become feasible in engineering instruction. (Author)
