Growing strong leaders and team champions in work, life and technology

About ECUE

Engineering defined and ECUE: 


1. the art or science of making practical application of the knowledge of pure sciences, as physics or chemistry, as in the construction of engines, bridges, buildings, mines, ships, and chemical plants.
2. the action, work, or profession of an engineer.
3. skillful or artful contrivance; maneuvering.
ECUE originated as a leadership component of an East Carolina University Engineering Project Management course I revamped and evolved beginning in the spring of 2007.  As a lifelong student of engineering, I wanted to instill in my students the work ethic that had driven me throughout my career as varsity college athlete, University of Notre Dame Joyce Scholar, 14 years working engineer and now Ph.D. in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering from North Carolina State University.
As my efforts continue, I have evolved this site to Emerging Challenges in Understanding Engineering (ECUE).  Engineering is utilized in all areas of life, whether one is formally trained or not.  All species “engineer” what is needed to survive and thrive in their environments.  Understanding engineering and its importance as not just furthering and maintaining technology, but as leadership of utilizing technology and its economic benefits for worldwide power will continue to emerge as the global economy struggles. 
As I am able, I will discuss topics related to engineering, technology and leadership both here and on Twitter @USAstephanie.
