Traditional doctoral degree programs in engineering are generally good at teaching “Linear Thinking,” that is the ability to apply existing knowledge to achieve important, but predictable, outcomes (as defined by Stauffer (2005)). However, with few exceptions, the US engineering educational system falls short in enabling the vital attributes of innovation: adaptability, inventiveness, and the confidence to propose new paradigms.
