“Many schools do a great job of preparing the next generation of engineers by teaching them how to solve technical problems. Solving the complex problems of our times, however, involves leading effective teams in technical collaborative environments and requires skills beyond those that are generally taught in engineering classrooms. The Engineering Leadership Certificate at Iowa State addresses this need, and students who have acquired skills through the leadership program would definitely have an advantage as they compete for the future jobs in our industries.”
