Tomorrow's engineers will need to be familiar with a wide range of fields, necessitated by rapid advances in technology that span several areas of expertise. This will be even more true for CAD engineers. Just as CAD tool suites of the future will have to integrate physics, optics, mechanical engineering, statistics, and perhaps biology, the design team of the future must include people who understand all those things. The universities of today should start training engineers to work on the design teams of tomorrow.
