Immersing in the complexity and messiness of authentic engineering challenges is an effective way to learn. We create opportunities for students to apply classroom knowledge toward significant projects with the support and guidance of preeminent professionals.
Experiential. Learn by doing. We believe in learning by doing or experiencing the complexity and messiness of authentic engineering challenges.
Professional Development. Technical skills are necessary but never enough for sustained, long-term professional success. Leadership, communication, and collaboration across disciplines are just some of the strengths students develop while working on an MDP team.
Real-world Projects. Our projects are authentic, reflecting real-world complexity and ambiguity. They require the application of both technical expertise and creativity to solve.
Multidisciplinary. Teamwork. Systems Thinking. Engineering solutions are rarely confined to a single discipline and rarely solved by one individual. Solutions require a holistic approach.
