The Problem of Engineering Creativity in Russia: A Critical Review
Kukushkin, Sergey; Churlyaeva, Natalya
European Journal of Engineering Education, v37 n5 p500-507 2012
The problem of technological creativity in Russia is briefly discussed. Special attention is paid to the development of indigenous engineering corpus in unfavourable conditions and some reasons for engineers' low creativity are revealed. The Soviet system of engineering higher education (HE) is criticised as not focused on fostering creative engineers and the existing HE system as a degraded relic of the Soviet one. Continuous education and training in advanced corporations engaged in innovations seems better suited for preparing engineers.
