Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies have moved to remote work, resulting in the cancellation of engineering internships. Engineering programs in higher education are scrambling to find ways for engineering students to complete their programmatic and graduation requirements for experiential learning.

This webinar, facilitated by ASEE Chief Academic Officer Jacqueline El-Sayed, provides an overview, template, and case study for developing a remote entrepreneurial internship. This webinar was previously offered for the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES).

Dr. Jacqueline El-Sayed is the Chief Academic Officer for the American Society for Engineering Education. She has leadership experience with the entire pipeline of engineering education and most recently served as the Chief Academic Officer & Vice President for Academic Affairs at Marygrove College. She is a professor emerita of mechanical engineering and served on the faculty at Kettering University for 18 years, eventually earning the position of Associate Provost. In addition to her work in academia she has served in industry and government. She is a four-time gubernatorial appointee to the Michigan Truck Safety Commission and, as commissioner, served as chair for two terms. She also chaired the Driver’s Education Advisory Committee and the Motorcycle Safety Advisory Committee for the Michigan Department of State—work that resulted in new legislation for Michigan. She began her career as an engineer for General Motors Truck Group and has been nationally recognized in higher education as both an American Council on Education Fellow and a New Leadership Academy Fellow. As an ACE Fellow she was placed at Harvey Mudd College, visited over 30 campuses, and completed a national benchmark study on experiential education. The study’s recommendations were then implemented at her home institution. Currently Dr. El-Sayed serves on the Bloomfield Hills Board of Education and serves on the Advancement Committee for the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP). She is married and has three adult children.
