Description

Engineers are expected to create value for their clients and customers, and engineering education models have recently embraced the :entrepreneurial mindset” as a desired outcome of undergraduate engineering education. In Fall 2017, an interdisciplinary team of faculty from the IRE program introduced entrepreneurial mindset in several courses and workshops throughout the program. This paper describes the experiences of faculty and students in the implementation of entrepreneurial mindset modules as well as preliminary results of this rapid deployment in an interdisciplinary engineering program. After one semester of simultaneous deployment, faculty are engaged and continue to work collaboratively. Student feedback is positive. The entrepreneurial mindset has become part of the culture of our program in a short time.
