The Framework for Entrepreneurial Engineering
The goal of the Framework for Entrepreneurial Engineering Project (FEE) is to collaboratively develop with experts the descriptions of the knowledge, skills and attributes required of an entrepreneurial engineer. With this knowledge the education of engineers to be more entrepreneurial can be designed and assessed. The FEE Project deliverables include a consensus description of the knowledge, skills and attributes of entrepreneurial engineering activity needed for each stage of the entrepreneurial engineering process.Two conversations with entrepreneurship educators and entrepreneurial engineers will be used to accomplish our goal: 1) a conversation with informed engineering educators in a two-day retreat following the 2013 ASEE annual meeting that developed an initial draft of our deliverables, and 2) a Delphi Study conducted in 4th quarter 2013 and 1st quarter 2014 with up to 100 entrepreneurial engineers to confirm the results from the FEE 2013 retreat. The workshop will discuss our results.
