Imagination and creativity have long energized technological progress. In recent decades, engineers and scientists exceptional for these qualities as well as in-depth knowledge in their disciplines have transformed the world through advances in information technology and many other areas.
As Santosh Kurinec advocates, staying on this path to a smarter, healthier and more prosperous world requires fostering creativity in technical education along with providing essential basic knowledge. It also requires building an educational system that nurtures talent regardless of gender or cultural background. Kurinec was the featured speaker for NJIT's 2012 Lillian Gilbreth Colloquium, held each year during Women's History Month. The Murray Center for Women in Technology established the colloquium in honor of industrial engineer Dr. Lillian Moller Gilbreth (1878-1972). Gilbreth's 1911 book The Psychology of Management was the foundation for modern industrial-management theory and practice.
