US News & World Report consistently ranks the program at number 1.

Famous quotes containing the words systems, industrial, engineering, stewart, milton and/or school:

    What avails it that you are a Christian, if you are not purer than the heathen, if you deny yourself no more, if you are not more religious? I know of many systems of religion esteemed heathenish whose precepts fill the reader with shame, and provoke him to new endeavors, though it be to the performance of rites merely.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The clock, not the steam-engine, is the key-machine of the modern industrial age.
    Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)

    Mining today is an affair of mathematics, of finance, of the latest in engineering skill. Cautious men behind polished desks in San Francisco figure out in advance the amount of metal to a cubic yard, the number of yards washed a day, the cost of each operation. They have no need of grubstakes.
    Merle Colby, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    ... it is not the color of the skin that makes the man or the woman, but the principle formed in the soul. Brilliant wit will shine, come from whence it will; and genius and talent will not hide the brightness of its lustre.
    —Maria Stewart (1803–1879)

    Others apart sat on a Hill retir’d,
    In thoughts more elevate, and reason’d high
    Of Providence, Foreknowledge, Will, and Fate,
    Fixt Fate, free will, foreknowledge absolute,
    And found no end, in wandring mazes lost.
    Of good and evil much they argu’d then,
    Of happiness and final misery,
    Passion and Apathie, and glory and shame,
    Vain wisdom all, and false Philosophie:
    —John Milton (1608–1674)

    The first rule of education for me was discipline. Discipline is the keynote to learning. Discipline has been the great factor in my life. I discipline myself to do everything—getting up in the morning, walking, dancing, exercise. If you won’t have discipline, you won’t have a nation. We can’t have permissiveness. When someone comes in and says, “Oh, your room is so quiet,” I know I’ve been successful.
    Rose Hoffman, U.S. public school third-grade teacher. As quoted in Working, book 8, by Studs Terkel (1973)
