It was already hard enough to graduate at State on time for some technical degrees when I was there. Undergrad engineering degrees required about 17 hours per semester, often with required labs that offered no or almost no credit hours toward that goal.

It was also pretty challenging to get the few sections offered in some classes to sequence properly semester after semester. Reductions in class offerings will almost certainly officially turn the engineering degrees into what they have unofficially been for some time - a five year degree.

Patrick, I'm afraid your thinking is a bit out of date. The standard measure is now the six-year graduation rate.


My son is a soph at State. I hope his major isn't "under subscribed". It'd be nice to know sooner than later. Plans to make and all that.
