Engineers & terror?

  1. 1. Does the article linking terrorism with engineering students suggest to you: (can choose multiple)

    • It may get worse with the proposed reduction of humanities requirements for engineering accreditation
      1
    • Engineers more noticable in terror incidents because of their how-to training
      1
    • Engineers more noticable in terror incidents because of their can-do predisposition
      2
    • Humanities students just as dangerous, as the 1970s showed in Euro left wing terrorism
      0
    • The western triumphalism of engineering from Romans to today especially irks non-western engineers
      0
    • Engineers like rule bound systems and expect people to also conform
      0
    • Engineering education should diversify to human needs like urban planners

The Chronicle of Higher Education gave food for thought in an article "Does Engineering Education Breed Terrorists?" http://chronicle.com/article/Does-Engineering-Education/235800 along with historical perspective about earlier terror periods with different flavors (esp in comments section). I include a poll above to support or not some of their themes.

...I dont think engineers are the problem but rather people that think that their "imaginary friend" is more powerful than the other "imaginary friends"...

After reading the article,  I thought about the engineers in my extended family.  and I will have to think more.    We have as many nurses and teachers as engineers,  so my family at least balances the problem....(sarcasm  - where is smiley - emoji or what every)  I did post this on FB to see if the engineers would comment.
