Innovation and entrepreneurship are the key drivers in today’s world. The push for sustainable products, services and technologies is needed now more than ever. From global corporations to small businesses, national governments to local governments, many are avidly searching for ways to come up with innovative and sustainable solutions to complex problems.
The Inventors Lab program has been designed to explore the importance of engineering entrepreneurship to benefit society. Engineering and the application of engineering thinking plays a significant role in the existence of human beings from time immemorial. The roles that engineering is playing in making life comfortable for all and sundry can never be underestimated.
Entrepreneurship, on the other hand, explores the capacity and willingness to develop, organize and manage a business venture. This includes designing, launching and running a new business. Entrepreneurship cuts across every sector of human life including the field of engineering.
The Inventors Lab program opens students up to the opportunities in engineering entrepreneurship, which is the process of harnessing the business opportunities in engineering and turning it into a profitable commercially viable innovation.
This program has been designed for students to explore the creative mindset and skills needed for problem solving that the engineering field is known for, but all draws on enhancing key business skills. This will involve the acquisition of tools, methods, knowledge of processes, and the organization and managerial understanding of innovation and entrepreneurship.
Taking strong inspiration from Google’s Design Sprint, the participants will learn what it means to be an engineer while they come up with creative ways to solve real world problems in teams. They will learn the specific process many engineers follow when approaching and solving real world problems, including the exploration of iterative design.
Students will design and create a product that will have an impact on the world or to their personal lives. These ideas will then be transformed into something more tangible through the use of a CAD software.
