Xavier creates new innovation courses

By: Lauren Young

It has become more apparent in the 21st century that our typical approaches to certain situations have had to be modified due to the constant transformations our society undergoes. This doesn’t only include advancements in technology, but also in the way that we learn and form solutions. In response to the changes of the world around us, Xavier is excited to introduce a new course titled Create: Innovation Engineering 1.

Xavier is partnering with the Innovation Engineering Institute in order to offer this course.

It will be the first of four Innovation Engineering classes designed to help students develop a distinctive method by which they can go about problem-solving in the most innovative way possible.

The classes also aim to give students the opportunity to create ideas that are patent-worthy in a variety of fields.

The university will be offering two sections of the first-level class beginning after Labor Day: INNV 101-01, which will meet on Wednesdays from 6 to 8:30 p.m. starting Sept. 4, and INNV 101-02, which will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m. starting Sept. 3.

You can sign up through the MyXU Portal or by calling 513-745-2993. If these two sections fill up, adminstrators are willing to provide additional sections for students.

If you have any further questions, contact class instructor Mr. Joe Christman, Associate Dean of Arts and Sciences Dr. David Mengel or Associate Provost for Academic Affairs Dr. Steve Herbert.
