Curiosity, Connections, Creating Value: The 3Cs

The community is focused on transforming engineering with the entrepreneurial mindset. This powerful mindset consists of three key elements known as the 3Cs.

Curiosity

Curiosity

Understand the broader world. Look toward the future. Explore multiple perspectives.

Today’s solutions are often obsolete tomorrow. Students must be empowered to investigate a rapidly changing world with an insatiable curiosity.
Connections

Connections

Think outside the box. Place old ideas in new contexts. Gain insights.

Discoveries alone are not enough. Students must habitually pursue knowledge and integrate it with their own discoveries to reveal innovative solutions.
Creating Value

Creating Value

Seek opportunities. Understand stakeholders. Have a positive impact.

Innovative solutions are most meaningful when they create extraordinary value for others. Students must be champions of value creation.
