Gordon Engineering Leadership Center

The Gordon Engineering Leadership Center supports the development and training of engineering leaders through engineering leadership courses, the Gordon Forum lecture series, engineering leadership awards and scholarships.

The Center will host a semi-annual working group in February comprised of engineering leadership centers from top universities across North America. The meeting will focus on several big-picture issues in engineering education such as identifying the kind of training today's students need and the curriculum required to meet those needs. In the meantime, the Gordon Center is interested in hearing from Jacobs School alumni about what kinds of skills, training and leadership qualities they believe will be essential now and in the future. Alumni are also invited to get involved in the center's work through mentorship of an individual student or group of students working on an engineering challenge project. There is also the opportunity to sponsor one of the center's events, in particular the annual Think Tank sessions, which bring together students, faculty, alumni and industry in a discussion about the future of a relevant and growing field. At the September Think Tank, participants focused on novel research and career opportunities in medical technology innovation. www.jacobsschool.ucsd.edu/GordonCenter.
