Standards and codes in mechanical engineering eEducation - Confounding constraints or helpful hindrances?

The inclusion of standards and codes in modern engineering education is not only ongoing, but is essential for preparing future engineers to play successful roles in their profession. Development, verification, and refinement of standards and codes in both undergraduate and graduate independent study and research projects have been highly successful in utilizing the unique and particular talents and resources of individual students. Standards and codes in engineering education provide helpful constraints to avoid confounding and hindering student learning.
