Much has been written about the lack of integration between knowledge and practice in Engineering education. The answer to the conundrum is often ‘experiential learning’. But questions lurk behind the soundbite: what experiential learning, whose, and developed by and for whom? At Inno Wing, we dedicate ourselves to nurturing students as REAL engineers. While REAL has its literal meaning of being authentic, it is also an acronym for Responsibility, Entrepreneurship, Awareness, and Leadership. Coming in different forms, our REAL experiential learning includes collaborations locally, regionally and ... (continued)
