The Third Conference on the Leader Engineer will focus on the university-to-work transition of engineering students, a critical stage in the professional formation of engineers. In particular, it will present and discuss two sets of findings from ILead’s current research on the topic of transition: 1) conceptions of leadership among early career engineers and opportunities for its practice and development in the workplace; and 2) the role of internships and cooperatives in the university-to-work transition of engineering students.
Through concise research presentations and interactive activities, the conference will allow participants to gain insights into theories, practices and issues of engineering leadership. It will also provide them with an in-depth understanding of engineering students’ internship and cooperative experiences and the role they play in their workplace transition. Lastly, it will facilitate the discussion of what companies can do to enhance recruitment, hiring, training, and retention of early career engineers.
