Transformational leadership development for engineers and computer scientists has the potential to refresh and reinvent the undergraduate engineering educational experience and enhance the leadership workforce at all levels. Built on the principles of personal development and growth, rather than traditional teaching methods, transformational development approaches challenge students to develop their leadership skills through personal growth. Undergrads who complete such programs leave their academic environment with not only knowledge from their scholarly discipline, but also skills applicable to their future professions by actively engaging the student in the development of self-awareness, perseverance, and connectedness. In this way, transformational leadership programs cultivate leaders who will flourish in their professional and personal lives by encouraging individuals to think strategically, work collaboratively, communicate their ideas effectively, and find innovative solutions to complex problems.
