The undergraduate engineering entrepreneurship minor prepare students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to essential 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.
The engineering entrepreneurship minor is open to all undergraduate students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who are in good standing with the College. The minor is also available to students in good standing that are enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science degree.
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.
