Benchmark degree is nothing new to those in the know

I read with interest the article regarding Liverpool's multidisciplinary approach. At the University of Missouri-Columbia we had the same principle in action in the late 1970s.

Our first two years of the four-year programme included courses from the other engineering disciplines. It wasn't until the third year that we focused on the courses specific to civil engineering.

In addition, the first professional examination we sat, the fundamentals of engineering, included problems from all disciplines, not just civil engineering.
