Engage 2021 - Princeton Engineering as Catalyst in the Innovation Ecosystem
Andrea Goldsmith joined Princeton as dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science in the middle of the pandemic, but she has quickly stepped up as a leader in the region’s innovation ecosystem. Dean Goldsmith brings a strong vision for developing a tech hub in New Jersey and her impact has already been seen. Professor Naveen Verma directs Princeton's Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education, which supports students and faculty in achieving social impact through entrepreneurship, design and design thinking, and innovative education. In this session, Goldsmith and Verma discussed Princeton Engineering’s role in the growing innovation ecosystem.
