Speaker: Dave Wilson, Director of Academic Marketing
From awe inspiring engineering feats such as the CERN Hadron Collider and the Red Bull Stratos’ space diving project to SpaceEx’s quest to revolutionize space travel, there’s no shortage of examples to inspire students to become engineers. We must overcome the challenges of recruitment and retention to prepare students to solve complex engineering challenges.
Recognizing that keeping students engaged with lessons that are relevant to their everyday lives is essential, learn about partnerships with universities that support programs designed to provide engaging curriculum directly linking abstract engineering concepts to impressive and dynamic real world applications.
In this session, get an overview of programs and innovative technologies you can implement today that incorporate both practical, hands-on learning experiences throughout the curriculum as well as provide the skills and knowledge to be successful in advanced research or industry.
