Engineering Leadership Development
The purpose of this article is to present an overview of the activities undertaken in the College of Engineering & Computer Science (ECS) at California State University, Sacramento (Sacramento State) with the Hornet Leadership Scholars’ Curriculum. The Hornet Leadership Program (HLP), launched in 2018, addresses some of our potential gaps in engineering leadership education. The program includes instruction on principles of leadership, seminars by industry leaders, leadership practice and reflection, discussions, one-on-one mentoring, leadership development in student organizations, and community activities. The program also reinforces the educational process by creating opportunities for participants to be coach/mentors for less experienced students as they progress in the program. The HLP allows students to enhance their engineering leadership training through direct application of leadership principles. As we grow the HLP, we have formulated three pillars of opportunity to encourage wide participation throughout the College. This paper describes the curriculum and our implementation of our unique engineering leadership program. The student feedback, outcomes assessment, and improvements will be published in a subsequent article.
