Course information


Engineering Leadership and Entrepreneurship (Core)

Have you ever wondered why organizations pass on great ideas brought to them by their engineers? Or how organizations take ideas and research and create successful products or services? This three part course sequence answers these questions and gives engineers the capability to generate disruptive ideas and transform them into actual ventures. Through experiential learning, based upon real world environments, students learn concepts and apply them on actual projects that create tangible value, require people management, and grow leadership skills.

Innovate- Build- Launch! Each quarter, students will take a deeper look into an aspect and stage of a business, and learn how it applies to their professional journey. 


Capstone Project (Core)


The M.Eng program believes in learning by doing. Interdisciplinary teams of M.Eng students are paired with corporate partners to work on an industry driven projects that are formulated to address real world unmet needs in the marketplace. Oversight and mentorship provided by the company allow students to gain not only valuable  technical skills, but also work experience enhancing their resume. Through this experiential learning portion of the program, students get a feel for what it takes to be a technical worker and leader. 

Students enroll in two quarters of the Capstone Project course. Enrollment can be over Winter and Spring, or Summer and Fall.
