Title:
ENTREPRENEURIAL ENGINEERING: REVISING THE ENGINEERING 101 COURSE

Authors:
Felipe Llaugel, Dennis Ridley, USA

Abstract:
The typical course in engineering begins with the assumption that manufacturing operations already exit. It also assumes that capital represented by facilities that produce final goods and services already exists, do not have to be created, and that engineering is only concerned with technical design execution, production and operations. In reality, all capital must have been previously created. The only source of capital must be human capital ideas of imagination and creativity, otherwise known as entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship, where it succeeds, creates its own demand in the minds of people who do not know what they want until it is shown to them. Therefore, engineering must be concerned with entrepreneurship education. A new CDR model is discussed for inclusion in the beginning university course in engineering.
