Dean Ottino Speaks at Faculty Dinner

On "Whole-Brain Engineering"

We were fortunate to have Julio Ottino, Dean of the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, address the guests of the biannual MPM/EMDC faculty dinner at Hackney's on Lake on November 17, 2018, giving a talk on his passion for "Whole-Brain Engineering” – a concept which takes left-brain analysis and combines it with right-brain creativity. Dean Ottino believes that effective leadership in the engineering fields requires a mastery of both; in 2017, he was awarded the Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technical Education by the National Academy of Engineering for his development of this unique philosophy.

For more information on Whole-Brain Engineering, see the Northwestern website or watch the video.
