IPRO--InterProfessional Project.
Chang, Morris; Luh, Ding Bang
The ability to work with different professions in a project-oriented setting is critical to today's engineering education. InterProfession (IPRO) projects, a three-credit course at the Illinois Institute of Technology, are integrated into the curriculum. Through these industry-sponsored projects, students will deal with real world engineering problems. This allows students to learn "the way we will work." This paper addresses the principle and practice of the IPRO through: (1) the basic structure of IPRO program, (2) a comparison with other similar programs, and (3) the authors' experiences with the IPRO project. From the experience with IPRO project, the authors propose the following: the 3Cs (communication, coordination, and cooperation) model for teamwork; teamwork cultivation; stress and confident management for project members; and leadership development.
