If you are interested in engineering entrepreneurship, commercializing technology, or starting a company, please see the list of TEC courses. TEC courses are intended for students who want to understand the business issues in engineering, as well as how new technology-based businesses are created and managed.
We recommend starting with TE/ENG 298 ILEE, which introduces you to innovation, leadership and engineering entrepreneurship, TE/ENG 250, which introduces you to the overall technology entrepreneurial ecosystem, and TE/ENG 360, which introduces you to the broad spectrum of basic entrepreneurship issues through various guest lecturers.
Students who have taken TEC courses have enjoyed gaining the knowledge and skills necessary to further their career paths, whether it is in a start-up, an existing enterprise, or somewhere in between. Many of the students who take TEC courses also earn a TEC certificate. Learn more information about TEC certificates.
