## Who should teach the mathematics subjects in the engineering curriculum? [closed]

Should mathematics courses in Engineering Degree Programs, particularly those which are covered in licensure examinations, be taught by someone whose background is mathematics, or by someone whose background is engineering?

This question is way too vague as stated to lead to a meaningful discussion. In particular, my usual complaint: unless the question is localized, i.e. references a specific educational system, it lacks the necessary context to make cogent arguments. – Thierry Zell Sep 9 2010 at 2:57
I agree with Thierry Zell's comment, and would also add that the current phrasing of the question is too subjective. – Yemon Choi Sep 9 2010 at 3:02
