Thanks for the great article Sylvie.
I was remiss at crediting, in my indignation, and need to add that, 8 Mil$ at SSU was a public-private collaboration.
We have many generous industry donors that supported engineering at a small liberal arts campus; Agilent, JDSU, Keck Foundation, Cerent, Calix, AFC, with focus on telecomm, EE, fiber optics, and scientific instrumentation.
thanks again for illuminating this issue. I see from some responses "what shortage is that? I am unemployed"
