Abstract

For the past two decades, there has been a strong national drive in China for scientific discovery and technological innovations in order to catch up with the developed countries of the world. Achieving such ambitious goals requires a whole new generation of scientists and engineers who are solid in academic foundations, capable of problem-solving, proficient in acquiring the latest information on scientific and technological developments, and full of courageous spirit for scientific and technological innovations. Does Chinese engineering education adequately prepare its students to undertake such historical endeavors? Based on an empirical survey of university faculty members, this study has investigated Chinese engineering graduates’ levels in
