Leadership and Entrepreneurship Courses
The following Engineering courses are considered to be offered from Spring 2018. These courses are planned to familiarize students in a more formal approach with the leadership skill, business management and developing high level technology venture.
ENGR 401. Engineering Leadership Seminar. 1 Credit.
This seminar course is taken by students participating in the CEM Leadership Development Program. Students will meet 4-6 times per semester to take part in workshops and activities conducted by the Jodsaas Center for Engineering Leadership and Entrepreneurship staff and invited speakers from industry. Topics will include leadership, management, business and entrepreneurship presented in an engineering context. Repeatable to 4 credits. F,S.
ENGR 410: Technology Ventures
Course Instructor/Coordinator - Surojit Gupta PhD MBA
The primary focus will be on developing techniques to formulate the strategic framework required to develop high-tech ventures. Successful techniques to take technology-intensive opportunities from concept to commercialization will be explored.
Objective: This course is geared towards students who are interested in entrepreneurship. More specifically, the course will inspire students to learn about developing successful technology ventures by using holistic approach. In order to fulfill this objective, the course has been divided into three modules:
Module A (Laying the foundation for a successful business venture):
- How to design a successful start-up, for example, business strategy, business idea generation etc., (b) how to assemble a focused team for a successful venture, and (c) how to reallocate different resources for the same, for example human resource management etc.
Module B: Creativity, Innovation, and Product Development
- How to promote creativity, and innovation, (b) IP generation, and (c) procedures for product development in different engineering streams (product design/prototype, marketing, pricing, distributing and selling, for example, franchise etc).
Module C: Investor pitch and business plan
This course will be further complimented by monthly presentations and learning sessions from the leading experts on different engineering fields. Every engineering discipline may select a particular module, they are interested in.
ENGR 490 (1-3 Credits): Topic in Engineering
Spring 2018 Topic: “Design of a Slurry Loop to Simulate Cuttings Transportation inside the Pipe and Annulus”
Course Instructor/Coordinator – Vamegh Rasouli/Harry Feilen
Design Phase in Spring 2018 and Build Phase Summer/Fall 2018. One or 2 grad students may be working on this project towards their Master or Ph.D. projects on a longer term basis.
Take this course if you like to:
- work on a real project that will be moved into the build phase
- work on a multidisciplinary project with a team of app. 12 students from different CEM Eng disciplines
- be involved in a practical and hands on project
- receive feedback from industry on your design
What support you receive?
- Access to the “Jodsaas Centre Design Project Lab” to meet with the group members and work on your project using the PCs and and other available resources
- Weekly meeting with the course instructors and other group members to discuss the project progress
- Industry experts feedback during the project design and build phase
- Industry financial support during the build phase
