We want to ensure our students come away with the specialized expertise required to succeed in today’s market. And when it comes to the industries offering innovative products and services – be it research and development, manufacturing, commercialization or marketing – our students will be working in an increasingly competitive world. Never before has it been so crucial for our engineers and computer scientists to possess the entrepreneurial skills needed to prosper in the business and technology sectors. That’s why we’ve created the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Endowment Fund to help our students acquire and hone these important technical and non-technical skills, most notably through annual competitions in entrepreneurship and innovation. The fund also allows us to present a speaker series focussing on timely topics. So when you make a gift to the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Fund, you’re helping shape our next generation of exceptional and entrepreneurial engineers and computer scientists.
