University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH. Ashkal Alwan, Beirut, Lebanon. The first, William P. Kimball , brought the engineering school into a close relationship with the mathematics and science departments. He recognized that engineers in the post-World War II era had to have a solid education in the sciences. In place of individual disciplines, such as chemical, civil, and electrical engineering, engineering sciences would form to be the foundation of an integrated core curriculum.
Thayer would graduate engineers, trained in the sciences and mathematics, to solve problems. Current reorganization in colleges and universities frequently takes the form of interdisciplinary and collaborative research and programs. Examples of such activities at the Thayer School are: biomedical engineering, biochemical engineering and biotechnology, microengineering and power electronics, computational science and computer-aided design, materials science research, nanotechnology, and environmental fluid dynamics programs.
One can see the value of having colleagues in the sciences, mathematics, and computer disciplines as well as at the Dartmouth Medical School and the Tuck School of Business. One challenge for the school is to avoid conflict between teaching and research and the well-known publish or perish phenomenon. Most of the research projects cited above were associated with the hiring of research-oriented professors during the post period. To meet research developments, about sixty research scientists joined the staff as full-time research associates.
The growth in research required not only human resources but also the upgrading, expansion, and development of support equipment and facilities. Increased research activities led a number of professors to explore possibilities of marketing their work. For him, the resistance stems from the view that anything that makes money is evil. However, the independence of the Thayer School, its separate endowment, and its small size enables it to be creative. On an institutional level, the college began to enter into collaborative relationships with companies.
For instance, in the late s, six companies agreed to provide financial support and bring in projects on which students could work, guided by faculty and in consultation with industry representatives. This evolved into the Cook Engineering Design Center. I admire the desire at the school to support research and yet not to emulate large schools, such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Now that research and the corporate relationship have been institutionalized, attention should be paid to the possibility of conflict of values between the academic world and the corporate world.Denver, CO.

The book, filled with approximately photographs and appendixes that include the names of overseers, endowed professorships, and faculty, will be of particular interest to current and former members of the Thayer community. A friend of mine was working on his doctorate in computer science, and he told me about the field of natural-language processing, where I could continue to pursue my interest in language, but from the perspective of computing.
