From Engineer to Corporate Leader

A Discussion About Leadership Development

Friday, October 29th

2:00-3:00 pm

Lowry Auditorium

Open to Everyone



Join us on Friday, October 29th from 2:00-3:00 in the Lowry Auditorium for a conversation with highly successful C-suite leaders—all Clemson alumni—in technical fields to learn more about their experiences, philosophies, and advice on how to prepare to be a leader in your field.

Many students who enter engineering and technical majors in college lack exposure or learnings on leadership skills. There is a need to help engineers get these critical life skills early in their careers. The concept for Engineering Leadership ( was created with an emphasis on an engineering-minded framework that teaches five key elements at the heart of leadership: Optimism, Trust, Courage, Humility and Love. Surrounding that are four components with three subsets, for a total of 17 aspects, or constants, of successful leadership to create a full leadership spectrum.

The premise of this Engineering Leadership mindset is that despite the complexity of leadership, it can be broken down into fundamentals that provide a framework to lead effectively. We believe leaders are built, not born. By focusing on the constants, we can build strong technically-focused leaders who are prepared for future success.

This event is sponsored by the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences (CECAS) in partnership with Engineering Leadership(
