It is 12 years since the last major review of professional engineering education in Australia. We set out to examine the "what", "how" and "who" of preparing the engineers of tomorrow, recognising that we will have to begin making the changes required now. In examining this issue, we recognise that the education of the past has served the nation well. However, significant changes are occurring in work practices, in the way we solve problems, and in society’s role in identifying and proposing solutions. Today’s challenges cannot be overcome by technical prowess alone.
