When is an electrical engineer not an engineer? When Arizona's state regulators decide to play word games


Re: @Kimo AKA Libertarians

When I was there back in the 80s (around the time when OSU started pushing "THE Ohio State University" as name), the CoE also granted a degree in Computer Engineering which was very hardware focused. You could also get a *BA* in CIS as well.

Interestingly, the Computer Science portion of the various degrees was all the same. What made them different were the electives you put with them.

And, then to add confusion to my poor little college mind way back then, I had a Linguistics professor at OSU make an acidic claim which stung us CIS majors :

"If you have to use the word 'Science' to describe your profession, then you are not a real scientist."

Still kind of stings today... ;)
