Dynamic competitions. Practical skills.
There's only so much you can learn from a textbook or a whiteboard. Students in Watson College have found that to be especially true.
Engineers need to take things apart and put them back together. They need to test things and constantly improve on them. That often means working with people from different disciplines to make something together.
In 2017, Watson College created a program called "Watson Competes!" that encapsulates all the different ways students have been gaining the practical skills they need with the added bonus of fun competitions, friendships and even a few awards.
