Engineering Education & Leadership

Return to: College of Engineering


Engineering Education & Leadership seeks to redefine engineering education while graduating engineers with diverse technical knowledge that are prepared to take on leadership roles.


The Engineering Education & Leadership program seeks to develop deep and varied technical knowledge as well as leadership capacity by:

  • Providing an open learning experience centered on project based learning and student autonomy.
  • Developing a community based culture where students can feel comfortable interacting with each other as well as their professors both in and out of the classroom.
  • Providing them with the opportunity to take part in experiences that transcend academics and develop skills, knowledge, and attitudes that are not taught within the classroom.
  • Conducting research that improves and advances engineering education.
