Real-world projects come about because of a need to solve real-world problems. They are frequently complex and require team members from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. College projects and problems typically address small, stand-alone problems within a single field of study. This creates a gap between academics and the real-world, and it does not prepare students for the reality of real-world projects.
Phil Gonski, PE, Project Manager from Burns Engineering and former Young Engineer of the Year, will share his experience understanding real-world problems to develop and run successful projects to solve them.
