The TIEE Concept: An Implementation Arm for iKBE Engineering Education Systems
One of the main highlights of the book is the model of an organizational structure to be implemented in engineering education intuitions to better enable the following:
- 1. Focus on multidisciplinary innovation, design, and entrepreneurship,
- 2. Soft skills development,
- 3. Interface with industry and solicitation of contextual needs in order to map into core engineering curriculum,
- 4. Elevate learning and teaching innovations and scholarship.
The model of a TIEE (Technology Innovation and Engineering Education/ Entrepreneurship) concept has been explained in further depth in this chapter and is visualized again here in Fig. 8.2.

Needs of Investigations on the Competencies in Higher Levels of the Pyramid
The project focused mainly on the base level (level 1 and some aspects of level 2) of the competencies pyramid model developed earlier in Chap. 2 and visualized again here in Fig. 8.3. Further in-depth analysis and projects will be needed to investigate competencies demands and set on the subsequent levels of the pyramid: 1—the domain-specific level, 2—the subdomain-specific level, and 3—the functional-specific level.
