LEADERSHIP, CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION
2013/2014, Semester 2
Non-Faculty-Based Departments (Tembusu College)
Modular Credits: 4
Why are some scientists and engineers better leaders than others? What is the ideal environment to encourage creative minds and innovations? We will together search answers for these interesting questions by examining some famous cases in science, engineering, medicine and industry in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The interaction between the broader historical, cultural and social background and the science, engineering and industry community will be emphasized.
