Discover the Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship Minor

The Minor in Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship focuses on cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset and preparing students for the modern workplace. The Minor in Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship is available to all students.

Existing and new businesses are increasingly based on new products, processes and services derived from the realms of engineering and science. These organizations are unique in their time frame, level of uncertainty and risk, management, and often in the investment of time and resources required for success.

Our students need to be able to integrate the unique needs of scientific and engineering research with business, to learn what business and technical functions bring to the table, and to gain skills in communicating the potential of research and development based innovations and start-ups in both verbal and written form. The interdisciplinary Minor in Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship is open to students of all majors.
