Overview

The Center for Entrepreneurship’s academic and co-curricular programs support students’ growth as entrepreneurs and innovative thinkers by offering exciting opportunities to create value, challenge the status quo, and develop new career possibilities. Students from across the University and the College of Engineering engage in our immersive curricular community and collaborate to turn their ideas into tangible, impactful projects.

The CFE’s classes demand active participation in learning multiple skillsets and perspectives. We teach students how to identify challenges and facilitate hands-on practice in developing solutions that are scalable and impactful.

ENTR courses at the CFE cover a wide range of topics, all taught by real entrepreneurs who teach from experience.
