  • What is Onyx's Way of Academic Engineering?

    Academic Engineering is an approach to building, delivering, and sustaining the best learning experiences for all. We approach this through the twin wings of Academic Excellence and Academic Ensurance. 
    We apply an engineering mindset to designing and building the next in education, and take constant steps to ensure that what we're building is in the best interest of humanity while ensuring the results are sustainable over time.

  • Why does Academic Engineering work?

    It provides a fundamental framework for identifying problems, designing and developing solutions, and monitoring impacts in an innovative, proactive, and future-focused way.
