When it comes to mass versus force... kg, N - versus slugs, lbs-f - it seems to me that metric is easier for engineering. I'm a UBC '81 Mech.
I went to the U of S '71 BE (Mech) and '77 MSc (Mech). The MSc would have been Mechanical or Bio-Medical up until the last week. Had to choose one or the other and Mech felt like home.

We should all switch back to Imperial because it will better for when the machines take over the world. You see, in binary:

0.1 = 1/2
0.01 = 1/4
0.001 = 1/8
0.0001 = 1/16
0.00001 = 1/32

So, like metric, you just shift the decimal point. But, it will make it much easier for when all of us subservient meat machines have to communicate with our future silicon gods.

Or, you could rebel against the machines and use base-10 metric. :)
