Chapter 24: Designing an S-STEM five-year program in engineering and entrepreneurship: a student-centric approach

Charles H. Matthews, Anant Kukreti and Stephen W. Thiel


There is general agreement that the well-documented and debated U.S. technology skills gap needs to be addressed (Beach, 2013). There is less agreement, however, about the best way to go about narrowing that gap. Similarly, while there is consensus surrounding the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education at all levels in general and higher education in particular, there is little agreement surrounding best practices on implementation in the classroom. This paper provides: 1) a brief overview structure and goals of the UC NSF S-STEM program, with a focus on recruiting underrepresented students to the STEM fields; 2) an overview of the critical introductory Engineering Education Foundation course (ENED 1020); 3) an outline of the specific curricula design for the dual BS in Engineering plus MBA with a Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship and BS in Engineering with a minor in Entrepreneurship tracks; and 4) a summary and future directions.
