An Exceptional Hands-On Learning Experience
The program will provide students from all faculties – engineering, design, and art – with the unique opportunity to gain practical experience in a real, challenging workplace.
As interns, the students will get to know the industry from within, while contributing their own, fresh point-of-view and enthusiasm for their field of interest.
In addition, the interns will get the chance to socialize, network and share their vision with the industry’s most relevant figures. In turn, these connections can later become advantageous when structuring their own companies, networks and collaborations.
Speak-Up - Public Speaking
Recipe for Success
This course is being offered in an experimental format. Students are welcome to audit the course, and participate in all course activities.
This course is designed to help you become a more effective and confident public speaker. We will demystify the process of writing, practicing, and performing a clear and engaging speech, work through the unique traits of oral versus written communication, and learn how to prepare speeches that are easier to deliver orally and understand aurally.
One of the best ways to refine your own speech ability is through a close study of others' speeches. We will have a number of opportunities to examine and discuss sample speeches and speakers. Growing out of our analysis of speakers, we will discuss who you hold up as a model speaker and analyze what makes that speaker effective. We will critically examine our own speeches and the speeches of others. By becoming a student of public speaking, you join a long history of rhetorical study dating back to ancient Greece.
The D.N.A. of Success
Fun and Challenging
Researchers, over the last fifty years, have attempted to examine and define how creative thinking takes place, and how it should be measured, engendered and implemented. What are the various psychological, sociological and biological factors that affect and promote human creativity? How can we, as individuals, harness them to enhance our own originality? What creative thinking techniques help us come up with new ideas and find unanticipated solutions to problems? How does a singular idea develop into a full-fledged project?
Studying creativity and innovation can help us enhance our creativity and innovation and channel our creative efforts, as individuals, entrepreneurs and future-thinking employees.
