“Leadership is not learned from words on a page, but from real life experiences. The learning begins by taking the initiative to discover and develop the thought that leadership is more than a position or title. Leadership is about uniting creative, innovative, and differing ideas into one cohesive, collaborative mission. The courses and experiential leadership components of the Engineering Leadership Certificate serve to challenge and foster growth in students helping to mold them into the future leaders of our country.”
