Communications Education and Training: Entrepreneurship and Industry Experience in Education

Feature Topic

CALL FOR PAPERS

Engineering curricula are rapidly expanding beyond traditional training in mathematical and scientific principles in order to better prepare graduates to contribute to a risk-based and fast-paced innovation economy. Such training generally emphasizes working with diverse teams to solve real problems and make effective decisions in a technology context. Often such training is overseen by a diverse group that may include faculty from both engineering and business schools and senior engineers and managers from industry with strong entrepreneurial and management backgrounds.

While great progress has been made in implementing such training, relatively little of the experience gained and lessons learned are formally shared with the broader community. This feature topic is intended to support the integration of entrepreneurship and industry experience into communications engineering curricula by providing educators, researchers and standards professionals with an opportunity to share their experience, best practices and case studies.     

Scope

Authors from industry, government and academia are invited to submit papers for this FT (Feature Topic) of IEEE Communications Magazine on Entrepreneurship and Industry Experience in Education. The FT scope includes, but is not limited to, the following topics of interest:

  • Case studies of the incorporation of Entrepreneurship and Industry Experience principles and concepts into communications engineering curricula.
  • Best practices for incorporating and Entrepreneurship and Industry Experience principles and concepts into communications engineering curricula.
  • Case studies of the incorporation of Entrepreneurship and Industry Experience principles and concepts into professional training.
  • Best practices for incorporating Entrepreneurship and Industry Experience principles and concepts into professional training.
  • Development of tools for use in learning about Entrepreneurship and Industry Experience principles and concepts and their impact on design and development.
