The undergraduate engineering entrepreneurship minor prepares students with the knowledge, understanding and skills essential to entrepreneurship in a start-up venture or within a larger corporation. This minor develops entrepreneurial and leadership skills, while introducing students to the multiple facets of entrepreneurship, innovation, creative development and the overall entrepreneurial process. After completion of the requirements, the undergraduate minor in engineering entrepreneurship will be listed on the student's transcript at the time of graduation along with the student's bachelor's degree.
For more information, visit the program's Undergraduate Engineering Entrepreneurship Minor webpage.
The engineering entrepreneurship minor is open to all undergraduate students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who are in good academic standing within the College.
The minor requires 15 credit hours consisting of two required courses and three elective courses.
To be awarded the minor, the students must successfully complete the 15 credit hour program requirements. A cumulative GPA of 2.250 or better is required for courses used to satisfy the requirements of this minor.
Each individual course that is counted towards these degree requirements must be passed with a D- or better (note, however, that a C- or better is required in all prerequisite courses to move on to a subsequent course). Prior coursework may be transferred from other institutions with approval.
To meet the minor's residency requirement, at least three courses need to be taken at CU Boulder (in person or online).
