The Power of Connections

The theme of the 2023 KEEN National Conference #KNC2023 is the power of connections.

Why connections? For engineers to succeed in a world in which data is exponentially increasing, they will need to broaden their thinking to see multiple viewpoints and solutions. Faculty can help students build a mindset that connects multiple spheres of context, systems, data, and even experiences. 

Making connections between disparate sources to gain insight is a key component of the entrepreneurial mindset. This is the second of the 3C’s (Curiosity, Connections, Creating Value).
