What is Innovation Engineering?Innovation Engineering is a groundbreaking program that provides a systematic approach to innovation. While entrepreneurship programs focus on the act of starting a business, Innovation Engineering is a data-driven, replicable model for developing and commercializing meaningfully unique innovations with value in both new and established businesses. The fundamental concepts of the program include tools and methods for creating, communicating, and commercializing meaningfully unique ideas.
For students, it is offered as a minor that complements any major or field of study including the sciences, arts, humanities, business, engineering, allied health, and education. In the program, students learn how to employ the tools and methods of innovation in their field of interest. These skills are essential to participation in the global economy and will prepare graduates to lead the commercialization of new products, services and technologies within any industry or business.
