We'll talk about how Making has pathways to engineering majors as well as its advantages to becoming technically literate, a benefit for any university student. We'll provide a couple of examples of the type of Making engineering students do in project-based learning engineering programs. PBL is an educational innovation by which a few undergraduate engineering programs (Olin, Harvey Mudd College and ASU's College of Technology and Innovation) have committed to integration hands-on experiences and building projects into 4 years of engineering curricula. This will not be a selling spiel for our ASU program but rather connecting PBL and Making.
