The University of Iowa’s College of Engineering was recently featured October 6, 2016 in Talent Economy as an innovative institution jumping on the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) bandwagon. The article focused on how the college now requires engineering students to take at least three credit hours of creative arts courses. The “Be Creative” requirement is recognition that these students will be better engineers if they are more creative artistically, according to Alec Scranton, the College of Engineering’s dean, who was interviewed for the story.
Talent Economy, a Human Capital Media publication, covers the evolving dynamic around the role talent plays in the modern economy.
