This course introduces the general concepts of entrepreneurial thinking in engineering such as opportunity recognition, risk assessment, and ambiguity/uncertainty. Marketing, business law, and strategic management will also be addressed. This course will compare entrepreneurship inside an established organization ("intrapreneurship") vs. establishing a new enterprise ("entrepreneurship") primarily highlighting the differences between the two. Students emerge with a broad knowledge of the engineer's role in innovation and a better understanding of how they might best implement the entrepreneurial mindset in their careers. Students will assess their individual entrepreneurial drive and creative style to better understand how their entrepreneurial bias could affect future career decisions.
