This is a world that is always changing by the minute, so in order to keep up we need to change things as well. Hampton University needs to improve the technology used by the engineering department to prepare students for their future in the engineering field.
As a University Hampton produces plenty of business man and woman but not very known for its engineering department or graduates. Hampton University not being highly known for its engineering department is possibly a big reason the engineering department does not have a top up to date technology for their students. In order to give students the best possible experience as an engineer, the department should invest in computers for the engineers to use in the building.
These computers should have the equipment to both practices and learn the graphics involved in engineering. Getting computers for the students to use can also serve as an easier way to teach the students with a more hands on approach. The basic writing on paper and sketching on paper is not what most engineers in today world use, they use software that allow them to draw it out on a digital surface. The benefits of getting more computers could also create more creditability for students when they are looked at by company's considering hiring them.

Both are programs that...
