W548B·Engineering as a Professional Calling
Technical · Liberal Education/Engineering & Society Division
Wed. June 18, 2014 2:15 PM to 3:45 PM
Room 105, Indiana Convention Center
Session Description

Engineering is more than science and math. It is a profession that blends technical skills with creativity, entrepreneurship, strong ability to communicate, problem-solving, and a broad contextual understanding of how technology impacts the society in which it is embedded. Students considering engineering as a major are also contemplating it as a job, a career, and a professional calling. This session explores how we as educators can help students make important decisions about how they will direct their life’s work.
