Science and Engineering Chair, Hassan Rashidi PhD, is an engineering and technology advisor. He provides seminars, keynotes, lectures and insights on research, product development, manufacturing systems, technology selection, engineering education, engineering major and career knowledge, innovation, advanced technologies, advanced manufacturing, nanotechnology, academic and industrial projects. He provides companies, educational institutions, teams and individuals with knowledge and insights to improve efficiency, to make things better, and to stay relevant with advances, innovations, and trends in this rapidly changing world. Also, his expert insights create a vision for students to learn more efficiently about their majors, research, related academic and industrial projects, related careers and trends.
Dr. Rashidi feels strongly that there is a need to inspire researchers and specialists to direct their expertise to develop creative solutions and innovative ideas to have a positive impact on improving the quality of life and creating a sustainable world.
Education, Creativity, and Innovation (ECI)
Have you ever asked yourself: In what area of your life are you really smart? What are you passionate about? What is your greatest strength? In general, each person possesses a unique individual passion and talent that are the building blocks for their success, happiness, and fulfillment. Education should provide a condition in which everyone can plant their individual passion and talent and harvest success, happiness, and self-actualization.
In general, each person possesses a unique individual passion and talent that are the building blocks for success and fulfillment. Education should provide a condition, in which everyone can plant their individual passion and talent and harvest success and self-actualization.
Education systems should provide an environment to guide everyone on their preferred field of study based on their individual passion and talent in order to maximize the potential of every person which systematically leads to maximizing the potential of the society.
Everyone wants and deserves to know how technological advancements are affecting their lives in terms of health, education, well-being, values, comfort, and performance. They want to learn how they can make the most of their lives with these advancements and still retain the human element. It is our desire to create a technologically literate society by keeping everyone informed.
Application-based Education (ABE)
Dr. Rashidi promotes application-based education (ABE) to enhance the excitement and love of learning that provides creative solutions and innovative ideas to address humanity’s grand challenges. His deep desire to help today’s youth find their passion in the fields of Engineering and Science has led him to create the Practical Engineering and Science for Youth program.
Dr. Rashidi, a leader in the innovative use of science and technology, offers information, insights and educational material to youth about the basic skills needed to become conscious stewards of technology. It is our intention to develop stimulating conversations and activities that empower our youth to work toward using science and technology to improve quality of life, medicine and the environment, in order to create a sustainable world and ultimately, to aid in the upliftment of humanity.
Dr. Rashidi believes that application-based education (ABE), in which learners are exposed to real products, services, opportunities, and visions of existing academic disciplines (fields of education), is an approach that helps everyone discover their preferred field of study, along with their individual passion and talent. This discovery can initiate the ignition for developing the excitement and love of learning that is an important nourishment needed to flourish.
Integration of STEM Learning into ABE Learning
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs should be integrated into application-based education (ABE) to illustrate the real application of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in specific areas, in which learners are interested and choose to follow, rather than providing pure STEM education that generally makes them squeamish. This approach provides learners with the knowledge and skills required for the career that they seek.
Practical Science and Engineering Program
This program specifically targets today’s youth to assist them as they begin to make life and career decisions in engineering and science. His expert insights create a vision for students to learn more efficiently about their majors, research, related academic and industrial projects, related careers and trends.
