The hypothesis is advanced that testing and evaluation (T&E) of complex weapons systems requires unique skills, that the testing and evaluation of weapons systems has evolved into a recognizable engineering discipline, and that professional technical personnel in the Department of Defense Test and Evaluation community should be considered as unique assets and supported by the establishment of a postgraduate curriculum in T&E engineering. The evolution of DOD T&E is traced and analyzed with particular attention to capability requirements of personnel. The general conclusion is reached that the hypothesis can not now be universally supported. Reasons for this position are given and recommendations made for improving capabilities of T&E personnel.
