This is a continuation of previous workshops on implementation of project-based learning/courses, intended to enable a pilot implementation in the fall of 2018.  This workshop will focus on practical aspects of industry-supported project procurement and tracking.  Participants will be given proven tools and techniques for approaching companies, developing company awareness of value and limitations of student projects, and implementing/tracking projects within the academic program.  Key outcome is development of program capacity to successfully implement project-based curriculum reform using industry supported projects.  This workshop should shape DUT’s approach and/or policy to how industry sponsored projects are obtained and managed.
