Since 2011, the ILead research team has been conducting foundational research on engineering leadership in two institutional contexts: workplaces and classrooms. Through our research, we have contributed to international scholarly discussions on engineering leadership, teamwork, engineering ethics and equity, undergraduate student experience and university-to-work transitions. Our research depends on insights drawn from a growing community of engineers and human resource professionals working in engineering intensive organisations. A third research context involves evaluating and analyzing ILead’s impact. All of our work is designed to serve ILead’s institutional vision – engineers leading change to build a better world. To learn more about ILead’s research initiatives, please contact Cindy Rottmann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
