Professional Development

The importance of leadership development has been highlighted by prominent engineering education entities including ABET and the National Academy of Engineering. According to the Engineer of 2020, “engineers must understand the principles of leadership and be able to practice them in growing proportions as their careers advance.” To answer this call, we will leverage leadership resources on campus to develop and implement our program.

Our partners include the following ECU entities: 1) Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement (CLCE); 2) Office for Equity and Diversity (OED); 3) Department of Bioethics and Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS); 4) University Writing Center; and 5) Speech Communication Center.

By participating in the BME-SIM program, you will build capacities in leadership, communication, and research.
