ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the debate regarding the Raise the Bar, an initiative led by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) which would require U.S. engineers to have a master's degree before applying for a Professional Engineer (P.E.). license. Former ASCE president Blaine Leonard argues that the U.S. need to produce the best engineers worldwide. However, University of Michigan engineering dean David Munson believes that the additional time and money would only impose extra burden.
