Diversity and FYEE Conference - Works in Progress Submission
The goal of this research project is to instill an entrepreneurial mindset by vertically integrating a single design project among two consecutive freshmen engineering design classes. The paper describes the context and background of two vertically integrated classes. Example work from students show the interpretation of the entrepreneurial mindset. A survey measures the effectiveness of the entrepreneurial mindset among students that are taking part in the project. Next, there are recommendations based on the information gathered during the implementation, including specific recommendations about the types of projects, constraints and methodologies. Other vertically integrated classes and curricula can use this case-study as a starting point for introducing entrepreneurial mindset. Lastly, there is a current discussion of case studies of vertical integration among student groups in non-consecutive semesters of a program, and student groups from completely different programs.
