Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
Even though I've made my decision on which college to attend I still do my fair share of browsing the internet to see what other colleges are offering. Kettering University is one that's been getting a lot of press lately. US News and World Report ranked them as "the #1 University in the nation for Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering" in its annual "America's Best Colleges Guide for 2008". Their unique programs including the engineering co-op programs place students in companies in their first year and rotate them from job to classes every three months. And their company partners include General Motors, Walt Disney World, TRW, Sandia Research Labs and even the CIA. And you can look on their website for even more.
Believe me my field is not industrial engineering but the whole concept of getting a real life education while also taking the required classes for your degree is the new class of Co-op programs. The students don't have to worry about their first job after college. Freshman students are working their first job soon after they start college with professionals in their field gaining practical experience and still enjoying all that college has to offer...including Stickman.
