Electrical and Computer Engineering
In their professional capacities, engineers identify problems, apply scientific and mathematical approaches to solve these problems, and provide reasoned justifications for their chosen approach. Such responsibilities call for well-developed analytical and creative thinking skills. Traditional engineering education focuses primarily on the development of analytical thinking skills, with students’ capacities for creativity being assessed only in the context of capstone projects or not at all: this often neglected aspect of engineering education needs attention. To that end, this workshop explores opportunities and methods for incorporating creativity into engineering pedagogy.
