Entrepreneurship in Engineering
There is a need to encourage innovation and the entrepreneurial mindset within our engineering and science programs. Toward this end, we have developed the Entrepreneurship in Engineering and Science course. We are also working with engineering faculty on ways in which entrepreneurship modules can be dropped into core engineering courses. In addition, we are working on an entrepreneurial option for the project addressed in capstone engineering courses. Engineering students are being recruited for commercialization projects, and are being supported in their participation in the Riata Business Plan Competition, are encouraged take up Riata Entrepreneurial Internships, and participate in the Entrepreneurship Empowerment in South Africa Program.
