Through lectures, assigned readings, and hands-on
activities, students learn about the parallel and
synergistic processes of scientific discovery and
engineering innovation. Open-ended projects give
students experience in mutualistic teaming,
technology transfer, product development, and
marketing, as well as opportunities to learn and
apply methods inherent in effectual
entrepreneurial activities. Team-based laboratory
projects focus on the process of technology
transfer (utilizing scientific research in
commercial product development).
