Instrumentation and measurement (I&M) may never be ready as a separate engineering discipline because it is intertwined with so many diverse fields. However, the formalism of I&M and the level of support to the broader community of engineers, scholars, and others who work in this area must be improved. Specific recommendations for action include dialog and debate, and a number of knowledge-management activities such as maintaining a comprehensive database of curriculum-support information. Academic institutions are charged with developing new knowledge and transmitting that knowledge through undergraduate and graduate education programs.
