Engineering is an extremely exciting profession! Engineers are behind many of the advancements we are taking for granted today including computers, the Internet, smartphones, medical tools and cars. Engineers use science and math to create cool products and machines that make life worth living.
Engineering is not only a field of study. It is a way of thinking. The word 'engineer' is from the Latin word ingenium, which shares the same root as the word 'genius'. Adopting an engineering way of thinking can improve our performance in our daily life regardless of our field.
This course combines the engineering thinking (CDIO) with entrepreneurial behaviour leading towards the creation of purpose-driven technopreneurs.
Let's change the world together.
Dream big. Be different. Have fun.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote “Man is born free, but he is everywhere in chains.” Poet Percy Shelley believed words could be stronger than shackles, and wrote poems intended to free mankind from their chains. Some have argued that poetry can do nothing--or as W.H. Auden said, "Poetry makes nothing happen." Yet Henry David Thoreau, Karl Marx, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela were inspired by Shelley's words to live in the service of freedom and dignity, and they changed the world. The Unbinding Prometheus MOOC investigates both what Shelley's words have meant over time, and what his words might mean for us today.
