Every time a job is added in the innovation sector, five more jobs of various types are created. The innovation sector includes engineers and scientists who create technically-enabled, tradable goods. It is an astonishing and unequaled job-multiplier.
At the heart of this 5x-engine are entrepreneurially minded individuals. It is why KEEN’s mission is to champion an entrepreneurial mindset within engineering graduates.
Engineering Unleashed provides a community for any faculty and staff interested in providing the rising generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset.
KEEN provides a laboratory for institutions to innovate and showcase best practices for engineering education.
Together, these two brands will transform engineering education. The mission is the same: to graduate engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset so they can create personal, economic, and societal value through a lifetime of meaningful work.
First and foremost, engineering faculty are encouraged to join our online community to connect, share, and collaborate with peers.
In order to be considered a member of KEEN, you must be an engineering faculty member employed by a KEEN partner institution. Even if your school is not a KEEN partner, there are still numerous meetings, webinars, events, and faculty development opportunities happening throughout the year that you can attend.
As a community member, you'll be able to search for other members using the search tool in the top navigation. Select "Members" to find people. Learn more about site search here.
In the Collaborate menu at the top, you can also check out the Community page to see highlighted members and their contributions. And you can browse through cards, forums, and groups to find conversations and collaboration from members.
Cards are flexible containers for content. They allow community members to provide context to resources they upload and share. They also allow community members to access and leverage what other faculty are doing so that they don’t have to start from square one when trying to implement entrepreneurially minded learning.
