Translational Engineering Skills Program (TESP)

 

The Translational Engineering Skills Program is one of the pillars of the ASSIST Graduate Education Program. Its goal is to teach strategic skills that cannot be learned in a classroom, yet are essential to students’ development as creative, adaptive, and effective engineers in the global economy.

ASSIST’s unique Translational Skill Set contains seven primary skill blocks. Each skill block contains a series of unique activities including:

  • Patent Mining SessionsTESP
  • Medical Observerships
  • Journal manuscript editing/review
  • Systems Mind Mapping
  • Diversity Workshop
  • Creativity/Innovation Workshop
  • …and many more!

Each of ASSIST’s partner institutions implements the TESP program. While many activities are shared among institutions, each partner offers unique expertise to this program.
