This program is designed to build market-ready skills in high-tech product conceptualization, development, and launch. Specifically the ability to work effectively in multi-disciplinary innovation teams regardless of the business setting is emphasized.
PhD students in this program develop an awareness of innovation processes— particularly as they relate to the business and legal activities necessary to commercialize new technology— and to build skills that will help them succeed whether they remain in a university environment as a researcher or move into an industry setting.
This program is designed to provide students experience working across disciplines, and developing an understanding of how researchers and business approach typical innovation issues. JDs will develop an appreciation of the issues and typical concerns faced from the perspective of the "client."
