Project-based experiential learning is at the heart of the CREATE Institute, and how students will develop the skillset and mindset they need to solve the complex challenges of today and tomorrow. It is a resource for industry engagement and academic excellence. The institute is focused on developing high-impact educational experiences for MSOE students and faculty that have a community impact. It also serves as the institutional hub for faculty development; professional learning workshops for faculty, an MSOE Mindset Speaker Series and student activities; and supports the integration of high-impact practices and project-based experiential learning.
The CREATE Institute supports development of the MSOE Mindset in undergraduates which aligns directly with diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging efforts. Components of being a Leader of Character, a Responsible Professional, a Passionate Learner, and a Value Creator is learning about people from diverse backgrounds, being aware of one's own intersectional identity, being able to create a sense of belonging with others and examining one's actions through a diversity, equity and inclusion lens.
There’s a new space on campus for students to collaborate, connect and bring ideas to life. The Cove is an extension of the CREATE Institute located on the ground floor of Viets Tower. The Cove supports the development of the MSOE Mindset for students in all academic programs on campus. The Cove exists to provide students with the opportunity to explore, invent, and prototype innovative engineering designs through open lab hours on a weekly basis as well as workshops, guest speakers and networking events monthly. The Cove Nelson Prototype Lab will support faculty, student, and community programming that provides opportunities to explore the MSOE Mindset.
