As an EE student who is bound more towards the research end of the
spectrum (hopefully) in my career, I appreciate the amount of "science
speak" that goes on in my program. Although most folks may pursue a job
after their B.S., not all of us do. Perhaps options to take courses on
the business side would be more appropriate than a mandate to do so, at
least in my opinion. At NC State, this is a route one could take with
their general education. It's all really a matter of what the student
is looking for in their education...
