Engineering Education

With our current Engineering PLUS INCLUDE Alliance project, we bring an array of project experience that ranges from community college through graduate programs. EPICENTER, was particularly valuable in helping to understand the engineering education ecosystem as it pertained to challenges associated with systemic change as it related to infusing innovation and entrepreneurship into the undergraduate engineering experience.
