Overview

Today’s industries demand more from their engineers and technologists. Besides possessing technical knowledge, they expect them to be business generalists who can manage technological, economic and social change. The responsibility to prepare engineering and science graduates to become future industry leaders by building a solid business foundation falls entirely on higher education institutions. Specifically, today’s businesses continuously seek innovative engineering managers to handle project design and development; create strategic plans; handle IP issues; handle financing; interface with marketing; manage engineering teams; recognize and evaluate market opportunities; and write technical reports.

This special session aims to address best practices and pedagogical methodologies for educators and training professionals to build a strong business foundation for their engineering and technology students.
