Program Description

If you have an interest in engineering and want to be able to apply these scientific skills to the business world, consider completing the Engineering Entrepreneurship Certificate at the University of Utah. In partnership with the David Eccles School of Business, the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering offers engineering students the exciting opportunity to be certified in entrepreneurship. Students will learn hands-on engineering skills and how to apply business concepts to technology: the curriculum includes courses business law, technical communication, launching technology business ventures, and entrepreneurship. The culminating experience in the certificate is the capstone, completed as an entrepreneurial project or thesis. Regardless of whether you want to start your own company or simply gain a better understanding of today’s business world, the Engineering Entrepreneurship certificate will provide you with the educational background to thrive in business environments.

Academic and Career Opportunities

Networking is a valuable asset in all entrepreneurial pursuits, so be sure to connect and engage through the department’s many clubs and organizations. Join Tau Beta Pi, a national engineering honor society, or engineer sustainable solutions for the community through Engineers Without Borders. Upon graduation, the Engineering Entrepreneurship Certificate will prepare you for careers as an engineer or businessperson: run your own company, patent a product, or freelance as a consultant. Careers in law, research, and administration are also possible with further education at the graduate level.
