John Cornelio 1148549 November 6, 2011 2 for 1 Engineering and business are both different aspects in academics. The concept in engineering is designing things to make the world a better place while the concept in business is how money revolves around the world. In the article, 2 for 1 , Penn State Erie, a world renowned school, had put a hybrid course of engineering and business on its system. Collaborating the two had made a powerful combination when dealing with real world problems. In addition, it gives an engineer a business insight when designing things. Penn State Erie promotes this interdisciplinary of business and engineering by putting the two schools together (Irene Black School of Business and School of Engineering) in a single building. Fusing both disciplines influences teamwork which is key goal for the institution. For instance, Penn State Erie’s student had help design an online auction system which saved a company, millions of dollars. Through this, the institution had been funded $176000 for academics.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
