Course Aims

Entrepreneurship - the creation of value through innovation - brings together the ability to identify promising opportunities for career business development with the skills, knowledge and motivation to realize these opportunities. This course aims to offer engineering students the basic principles and concepts about entrepreneurship as well as creativity and innovation. It then introduces key elements of the complementary skills and knowledge bases, both managerial and engineering, which allow various technological and business opportunities to be pursued and planned effectively. Students will learn individually, and in groups, to integrate knowledge and skills required to identify, plan and seize a business opportunity, ideally based on a new idea in technology and engineering. The development, preparation and presentation of a project and business plan will be a central focus. Students will be directed towards the models with which they can identify opportunities in the context of their chosen career in the future.
