Honeywell visited Czech Technical University (CTU) with its newest global science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education program, the Honeywell Initiative for Science and Engineering (HISE).
HISE at CTU kicked-off with a lecture by Professor Sheldon Glashow, who shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1979 for his contributions to the theory of the unified weak and electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles. His lecture “Does Science Evolve through Blind Chance or Intelligent Design?” illustrated how some scientific advances, such as X-rays and penicillin, arise unexpected and some are designed with purpose.
The HISE program, along with partner universities around the world, are working to cultivate and inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists and help them bridge the gap between technical skills learned in higher education with business acumen required in today’s workplace. Through lectures, colloquiums, technology presentations, special campus events, and online content, HISE gives students direct access to Honeywell’s top technologists and engineers, as well as some of the world’s Nobel Prize-winning Laureates in chemistry and physics.
