Abstract

In summary, while decision making should be brought more speedily into the engineering curriculum, we must incorporate it creatively. As Albert Einstein said "the significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.(Skinner 1999)" More research is needed in the context of this issue.
