Engineering Unleashed is a community of more than 4,000 engineering faculty and staff with a shared mission to graduate engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset so they can create personal, economic, and societal value through a lifetime of meaningful work.
The Entrepreneurial Mindset
An entrepreneurial mindset helps you identify opportunities, solve for problems, and create long-lasting value—in your classes, campus, community, and the world. When combined with the skills and work engineers already do, entrepreneurially minded engineers become powerful agents of societal good.
Membership to this community is open to faculty interested in inspiring future generations of engineers to identify opportunities, make a positive impact, and create value for the world around them.
Our mission: To graduate engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset so they can create personal, economic, and societal value through a lifetime of meaningful work.
Whether you are a first-year professor or an engineering education thought leader with years of experience, Engineering Unleashed is a place where you can communicate, share, connect, and create. All ideas, contributions, and experiments that advance the Engineering Unleashed mission are welcome!

Engineering Unleashed Faculty Development National Workshops deliver actionable, adaptable strategies and resources that empower you to create long-lasting value with the entrepreneurial mindset.
Great faculty development paths inspire great careers. By participating in a National Workshop, you'll add to your abilities, increase your effectiveness, and amplify your impact. The tools and techniques you learn from these workshops will benefit your community, your career, your students, and your institution.
Faculty development doesn't end when the workshop does, either. Over the span of a year, you'll bring a project to life on your campus with guidance from coaches and fellow participants!

The Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN) is a partnership of more than 50 colleges and universities across the United States.
KEEN Partners are driving change within engineering education: Each institution commits to reaching all of their undergraduate engineering students with an entrepreneurial mindset. Faculty and staff within KEEN contribute to and influence the Engineering Unleashed Community and the broader engineering ecosystem, reflecting the belief that networks scale impact.
The future of engineering.
While KEEN and Engineering Unleashed share a mission and vision that is focused on adding entrepreneurial mindset to undergraduate engineering, they are part of something larger: The Entrepreneurial Engineering Movement.
Members of this movement believe that an entrepreneurial mindset coupled with engineering thought and action, expressed through collaboration and communication, and founded on character, is the key to unleashing human potential in order to solve societal problems and create an environment for human flourishing.
Engineering Unleashed promotes professional growth, offers collaboration opportunities, and provides access to a wealth of community-created content and best practices for entrepreneurially minded learning.
Get ready to inspire future generations of engineers to identify opportunities, make a positive impact, and create value for the world around them!
