This paper will present a series of emerging education and assessment models, methods and techniques being developed and put into practice by the Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network (KEEN), a network of twenty private universities committed to developing a new class of entrepreneurial minded engineers. KEEN strives not to develop engineers who create new firms, but a new class of intrepreneurial engineers providing know-how and leadership to improve American competitiveness. Faculty will share curricular and extra-curricular programs and assessment models being developed and employed to reform undergraduate engineering education. Examples of defining and benchmarking learning outcomes, creating and evaluating assessment models, methods and techniques will be discussed. This will include both school-based models and the early results of the KEEN TTI Assessment Project that had over 2,500 student participants in its first year. Data from this initiative will be presented, discussed and critiqued.
