Description

In this session the discussion will be on how to contribute to develop this Entrepreneurial and Bold Engineer from different perspectives, government and education.

Some of the main issues to be discussed: How prepared are our engineering schools to teach this new line of engineers, intrepid to think and eager to challenge the limits of knowledge, technology and society in general? Is our courseware capable of giving spaces, incentives and motivation for this type of thinking, attitude and skills? Since innovation and entrepreneurship are key to the he economic and social importance of development and growth of society. Are we able to ignite the spark of innovation and entrepreneurship or academic rigor and the severity of our discipline can extinguish it?
