Whether forming a new company, or being part of a larger organization, students interested in the engineering entrepreneurship graduate certificate will learn how to develop new and innovative products, and the processes required to successfully introduce into the marketplace.
The certificate is a hands-on, practical series of courses that begins with a focus on the product development process, emphasizing where good product ideas come from, and identifying the characteristics that resonate with customers. From there, students learn how products are commercialized within the framework of an existing company and the methods necessary in launching a new high-tech startup.
All courses are taught by faculty that have successfully launched new products or new companies, and have therefore lived what they teach. Finally, the courses are project-based, culminating with student presentations suitable for potential customers, their company's C-Suite or venture capitalists.
