PEO Etobicoke Speaker Series Presents: Creativity in the Engineering Profession

About this Event

Abstract:

Creativity plays a critical role in engineering design and engineering problem solving. Yet many think that creativity is an innate trait, often not natural to analytical engineers. In this talk, Dr. Olechowski will argue that creativity is something that you can and should learn, and improve with practice. Dr. Olechowski will share the latest research on attitude and culture for setting up your technical team to successfully be innovative. Dr. Olechowski will conclude with highlights of current research from her lab at the University of Toronto.
