The Epicenter community presented new findings and insights at the ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition June 14-17, 2015 in Seattle, WA. Eleven sessions featured papers and panels from Epicenter leaders, faculty in the Pathways to Innovation Program, student University Innovation Fellows, and researchers in the Fostering Innovative Generations Studies network.
Topics included program development, assessment, innovative course offerings and gender diversity in engineering. A special Epicenter-themed session June 6 included talks on predicting career choice among undergraduate engineering and business students, new questions resulting from the 2014 Epicenter Research Summit, and integrating entrepreneurship into capstone design.
