Establishing a marketable major like engineering will enhance the viability of an ISU education and could attract more students. A question will be which, or how many, of the various engineering disciplines might be offered. Realistic planning should recognize the type of academic programs that are more likely to produce jobs. I commend the business school for establishing the insurance and actuarial specializations.
Per the article.

"It appears that given our faculty expertise and other information they have gleaned from their visits that engineering systems, engineering physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and civil engineering are our most likely additions at this time," Dietz said in a follow-up email. "We would most likely phase those programs in over time. We are still in the early stages of our planning processes. We would need additional assistance from the private sector as well."

Maybe we could even invent a pizza launcher and be the envy of all mid-majors.

Calzone launcher.
Or a pair of shoes/socks that don’t cause our star recruit to miss 4,000 games due to blisters.
I hear ya. There's a product called Aquaphor that's great on blisters. Usually the blister is about 70 percent better the next day. I almost went over to the athletic dept to tell them about it.

You’re only interested in cleaning the caboose.
