Sa'ad Medhat is out of touch about what the engineering industry wants and what universities provide. Why has industry been snapping up engineering graduates? Why have the salaries of graduating engineers been increasing faster than those in any other profession? Has industry been paying for graduates they do not want? Where is the objective evidence that the MEng is considered unattractive? Not at Strathclyde, nor at the other universities represented on the Engineering Professors' Council that offer MEng courses.
