The Jodsaas Center develops interdisciplinary curriculum, programming, and outreach opportunities for faculty and students related to leadership and entrepreneurship.
One of the first goals is the creation of a minor in Engineering Entrepreneurship, which will provide opportunities for students to experience the challenges of going beyond design and manufacturing into the realm of commercialization, marketing, and sales.
