The Entrepreneurial Engineering Minor is designed for the technology-minded entrepreneur who seeks to understand disciplinary fundamentals, assess market needs, create technologies, and determine how to manufacture solutions sustainably and economically. The course requirements for the minor are designed to incorporate both engineering elements (product development and prototyping) and creative elements (product design), along with market and societal considerations (customer discovery and needs assessment). The elective option provides an opportunity to specialize in one of three areas: manufacturing, design, or venture creation. Versions of this minor are available for both engineering and non-engineering majors.
