V. Will they come?

Initiating a new program is one issue. Whether students will enroll in the new program is another. The UTEP MIE program has an advisory board that reviews all issues related to the program. The board is composed of 16 industry and academic representatives from across the U.S. A central issue related to their support, which is critical, was the willingness of students to participate in the proposed program. Therefore, a questionnaire on sustainability/green engineering was prepared for incoming freshmen at UTEP. A copy of this questionnaire is shown in Table 2. Since freshmen are likely to have little knowledge concerning sustainability/green engineering, each group was given a 10-minute presentation by co-author Alfredo Martinez to provide the basis for and informed response. Responses to three of the questions follow.
