The world faces many challenges. Technology and engineered systems can provide solutions to these challenges. To bring these solutions to bear, we need engineering leaders. Furthermore, studies identify the competitiveness gap of the United States in bringing innovations to the market. A common theme across these studies is the need to build worldly, leadership, and professional skills within the engineering profession. We need to produce the leaders who can deliver sustainable solutions to the world’s biggest challenges. Creating these engineers requires an education experience and environment to provide a unique experience environment to learn these skills. eli2 intends to provide this environment and experience.
