<p>The author examines the state of computer science education and discusses the trend whereby computer science graduates are ending up in engineering jobs. He questions whether this back door to engineering is in the best interests of the students, their employers, and society. He argues that computer science programs must return to a classical engineering approach that emphasizes fundamentals.</p>
