In partnership with the David Eccles School of Business, the Engineering Entrepreneurship Certificate offers students students the opportunity for hands-on innovation experience as well as a strong foundation in the business aspects of technology.The program is intended for students who not only want to start their own company, but also for those interested in the complexities of the dynamic business world we live in. Our aim is to provide the educational background to thrive in small and large business environments, convey technical information in business terms and understand business viability of engineering solutions. All science and engineering students interested in understanding the complexities of the dynamic business world we live in are invited to apply.
Undergraduate students in science and engineering need 20 credit hours to complete the certificate. Some courses taken toward your engineering major will count toward the certificate: the exact number of additional courses depends on the student’s major. The table below lists the courses that an undergraduate student must take to receive the certificate. A GPA of 3.0 or better is required to earn the certificate.Graduate students in engineering or other selected scientific disciplines need 15 credit hours to complete the certificate.
