Project: Tec Talk
The talk will start with an exploration of an education philosophy that emphasizes practical thinking and encourages innovation and entrepreneurship in academic research. In an academic culture of innovation, students and faculty become partners in solving problems and developing practical solutions that improve the quality of life for people around them. Students who are educated in such a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship, create start-ups and employ other people rather than looking for jobs themselves. There are many successful examples of such thinking, most notably in the Silicon Valley, California. The talk will illustrate this philosophy through my story of innovation and entrepreneurship.
