The requisites of an engineer are discussed from the academic point of view. These requisites are related to the goals of engineering education. The synthesis of an engineer is considered to take place in the laboratory and classroom during the academic career of the student. The several aspects of engineering education are outlined and explored in order to stimulate thought on which experiences build technical competence and which experiences establish the complementary qualities required for a successful career in engineering.
