In all of the engineering classes, you're learning in great depth how to solve a problem. That’s great. But for our students, we're teaching them how to define the problems to be solved, and that's a much more difficult task. How do you decide what you’re going to do for your startup, or what’s the next project for your team going be? What's in the pipeline? That's much harder than solving a problem someone has already given you.
