    I would contend that even saying "a lot" is going overboard. Don't you think that those people who are "business people" are probably there because they know something that comes from their educational background? Just because you sit in a cushy office telling people what to do and going to meetings doesn't mean that you're no longer involved in what happens in a company as far as the actual work. Most "business people", as you call them, usually have some kind of background knowledge into what they deal with on a daily basis. And most of them have a degree in a similar field.

    just for clarification:

    CE = Civil Engineering
    CpE = Computer Engineering

    I always thought it was funny that the best three professors I had in school all had EE degrees, not CS degrees. They didn't necessarily know more than other professors with CS degrees but they sure could teach it better.

    Nope... sorry. I've always seen CE refer to Computer Engineering. And since we're on programming board, I'd like to see it remain that way.

    really? As far as I know, the ASCE is the American Society of Civil Engineers. Not only that, universities refer to them as I mentioned above.

    I'm not here to get into an argument, that's just the way I've seen it.

    It's a matter of opinion.

    AFAIK, computer engineers still fall under the IEEE.
