Problem solving is at the core of what engineers do. We strive to make the world a better place. We do so by tackling tough challenges or opening up whole new possibilities from innovative ideas and inventions. No doubt you already have excellent problem-solving skills that you need to earn your engineering degree and to flourish in your job. In this webinar, we’ll engage with key approaches to problem solving such as rigorously defining the problem statement, root cause analysis, abstraction, analogy, brainstorming, trial and error, divide and conquer, and lateral thinking. Honing this skill will help you deliver much richer, better solutions to real-world challenges.
