Education for a rapidly changing world ...
Engineering Beyond Boundaries (EB²) is a new, long-term educational transformation initiative in the College of Engineering that will encourage faculty and staff to rethink our academic culture to address important shifts, including:
Going beyond traditional engineering boundaries.
Going beyond the boundaries of the state and nation to prepare students to work and succeed in many different countries, cultures and languages.
Going beyond the boundaries of the college, with programs supporting greater connections across disciplines such as biology, medicine, business and the humanities.
Going beyond the boundaries of the classroom, with new technology and multi-media strategies that allow faculty to expand their educational approaches.
Going beyond the boundaries of conventional thinking about engineering education and recasting our content and approaches for a rapidly changing world.
The Wisconsin Idea
The initiative builds upon innovative projects that were developed by faculty and staff from fall 2005 to spring 2009 through the “2010 and Beyond Round Table.” The century-old Wisconsin Idea, which holds that the university's benefits should extend to the citizens of the state, nation, and beyond, was a guiding principle for the 2010 projects and the EB² initiative.
Engineers will play a role in solving every major challenge facing society. Yet there is no single, complex problem that will be solved exclusively by engineers. To make a difference, engineers will need to contribute to teams that are culturally and intellectually diverse.
Through EB², we hope to make that diversity come to life for our students.
