The Engineering IDEAs Clinic
Bringing Real World Into the Classroom
The Engineering IDEAs Clinic™ supplements a traditional engineering curriculum with open-ended activities designed to spark student self-learning and exploration.
Through Ideas Clinic activities, students will learn good engineering practices by experimenting with real-world engineering problems; they will gain an appreciation for the connections between courses in their curriculum; they will apply their analysis skills to complex, open-ended problems; and they will exercise their creativity, judgement and problem solving skills while acquiring soft skills such as communication and teamwork. Most importantly, the activities will provide students with a breadth of hands-on experiences in an enjoyable and safe environment.
