At the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business, we understand the partnership between engineers and entrepreneurs. When research merges with tech, commercialization opportunities arise. As an engineer with an entrepreneurial spirit, you may not be familiar with business as you try to bring a new venture to market.
The Engineering Entrepreneurship Program offers opportunities in entrepreneurial management to help you develop the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the challenges of business in the high-tech industry. The program is a collaboration between the Scheller College of Business, the College of Engineering, and the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, and combines the experience and expertise of each of these areas to provide you, Tech faculty, and the Atlanta community with educational opportunities in the area of high-tech engineering entrepreneurship.
The program's focus includes:
A graduate-level curriculum leading to a Engineering Entrepreneurship Certificate
Short courses on a variety of topics for faculty members, scientists, and engineers
Academic conferences on technology entrepreneurship
Seminars from high-profile speakers who have made an impact on industry
This program was originally funded by a special opportunity award from the Whitaker Foundation and by the Lawrence P. Huang Chair in Engineering Entrepreneurship. Further project funding come from the NCIIA for Medical Device ventures and the Technopole, Metz.
