Free ticketed event
This hands-on session will help participants to develop a minor or certificate in engineering studies for non-engineering students. The purpose of these minors or certificates is to provide a meaningful understanding of technology and engineering for students who are not planning on working as engineers but who expect to be working in technology-related fields or industries. Key factors in attracting and promoting programs to non-engineers will be described. Participants will be able to create an outline of a program structure consistent with their institutional environment. Strategies for obtaining institutional committee approvals will be reviewed. Resources for obtaining appropriate supporting materials will be provided. The session leaders are experienced in developing and launching engineering studies minors and certificates.
