edX Offers Course On ‘Leadership for Engineers’, By Delft University

Posted By:

December 9, 2015: Many of today's global challenges require tech-driven solutions, climate change, the growth of the world population, cyber security, the increasing demand for scarce resources, digitalization, and the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. With this in mind, it is no surprise that one fourth of the CEOs of the world's 100 largest corporations have an engineering degree.

However, simply understanding technology is not enough. Successful leaders today must have both the ideas and the know-how to put these ideas into action by working collaboratively with others, winning their hearts and minds.

edX's new course on 'Leadership for Engineers' will prepare learners on how to effectively lead in a technology-driven world, define their personal leadership journey, and make their career choices.

This course will be taught in three parts:
In the first part, learners will explore the context that leaders are facing, building an understanding of the complexities of global and business challenges. They will discover the ambiguities and the many stakeholders that leaders must consider when making their choices. They will get a sense of effective leadership practices.

In the second part, learners will discover their "who am I" through personal and group exercises. They will create a "Personal Charter" that can serve as a life-long guide, helping them, as a leader, to make important choices in their personal and professional life.

In the third part, learners will discover what sustainable leaders do. The course will offer frameworks to help learners make their own career choices.

The course is designed specifically for individuals who are currently enrolled in an engineering program or who are in possession of an engineering degree. However, people with working experience or a strong interest in the topic can also take up the course.

Taught by DelftX, 'Leadership for Engineers' kicks off on January 05, 2016. It is a 5-week course with an effort of just 2-4 hours per week.
