The purpose of this workshop is to present the Constraint-Source Model (CSM) framework and preliminary evaluation data from an initial deployment of the CSM to the first-year engineering community for review, discussion, and refinement. The CSM is conceptually based on four characteristics traditionally associated with the entrepreneurial engineering mindset: technical fundamentals, customer needs, business acumen, and societal values. Our hypotheses are that, by categorizing constraints such that the source of a constraint is also included, an engineering student can (1) examine each constraint from the point of view of a stakeholder from that source area, thereby allowing for a greater perspective on how such constraints can affect the design, and (2) gain an appreciation for the general education courses that provide that perspective. Resources developed to date in support of this framework will be provided. Attendees will have opportunities to apply the CSM towards different design scenarios, to participate in evaluation of student submissions, and join in a facilitated discussion afterwards.
