The Clark School has introduced a new educational opportunity for students – a Minor in Engineering Leadership Development. "The Clark School has always offered students an excellent technical education," noted Interim Dean Herbert Rabin. "The Engineering Leadership minor focuses on the engineer’s role in the workplace and society and helps instill the highest standards and expectations in our graduates." Students can earn the minor by completing coursework in communication, global awareness, project management, understanding oneself and working with others. "The new minor will prepare engineering students for life-long leadership roles in education, industry, and government," said Gary Pertmer, associate dean for education. "Employers consistently report that leadership skills and experiences are highly valued when considering potential employees." The new 16-credit minor will be available to students in the spring 2008 semester. All undergraduates are eligible to enroll, but must be enrolled at least one year prior to their graduation date to earn the minor. The following courses are required to earn the minor:

  • ENES 317: Introduction to Engineering Leadership (3 credits)
  • ENCE 320: Engineering Project Management (3 credits)
  • ENES 472: International Business Cultures in Engineering and Technology (3 credits)
  • ENES 424: Engineering Leadership Capstone Course (3 credits)
  • EDPL 338: Intergroup Dialogue (1 credit)
  • Elective: Requires advisor approval (3 credits)
