“Design thinking, like systems engineering, is at the heart of how engineers solve problems,” said Barbara D. Boyan, Ph.D., the Alice T. and William H. Goodwin Jr. Dean of the VCU College of Engineering. “These are core skills that are critical for all types of engineering. Not only do the individual parts need to function within a larger system, but users must want to use a technology in order for it to have value within the system. Design thinking informs the entire process. We are excited to be able to give this opportunity to our students at the beginning of their education at VCU Engineering.” 

Students who complete a da Vinci Center workshop will earn a certificate through corporate trainer ExperiencePoint that is recognized by employers. “It’s not just a VCU credential,” Westlake said. “This will make VCU Engineering students more competitive for internships and other opportunities earlier in their academic career.”
