Entrepreneurship & Engineering Innovation
Efforts are ongoing to actively engage private and public educational administrators, community leaders, non-government agencies, state and local government leaders, and other entrepreneurial ecosystems to embrace entrepreneurship. These ecosystems are expected to provide the platform where students can develop ideas that will shape and transform their future. The goal will be to create outstanding opportunities for sustainable growth. For example, the current higher education pedagogy will require taking a closer look at the unique assets of colleges and universities in order to align curricula and institutional programs with industry needs. Engineering entrepreneurship education should focus on teaching young adults, at earlier ages, about innovation and the associated challenges. Some of these challenges include sustainability, access, safety, and lack of awareness. The paper will discuss the challenges, ideas, long-term approaches as well as general insights on how institutions can integrate core entrepreneurship values into the academic curriculum.
