DescriptionThrough the Master’s programme in Entrepreneurial Engineering, you have the opportunity to acquire the tools, methods, knowledge of processes, as well as an organisational and managerial understanding of innovation and entrepreneurship that will allow you to make a difference.
The Entrepreneurial Engineering programme develops mind-set and skills that enable you to create and realise new value for people and organisations. You and your fellow students will bring different – mostly - technical competences into the programme, and the purpose is to creatively combine these technical competences with business savy in order to create new value. With a foothold in your technical background, you will learn to generate, develop and realize ideas. From idea to reality - from thought to action.
The Master's Degree is structured around three generic activities, which are part of the process of creating new value: Discovery, incubation and acceleration.
Discovery concerns new opportunities, incubation is about developing and testing new concepts and acceleration deals with realising new value. The study programme emphasises a natural progress, which is why you will work with discovery on the first semester, incubation on the second and acceleration on the third semester.
When carrying out the Master’s Thesis, you can work with all three subjects at the same time as you can add whichever perspective you might find interesting to the project. . Each semester has an “Intro” (introduction) and an “Outro” (reflection), and the first three semesters have inspirational and supportive courses to underpin the team based project work.
Career OpportunitiesThe job options are multiple. Your skill profile as a Master in Entrepreneurial Engineering is attractive for many types of companies/organisations in need of business development, including large private and public companies, small and medium size companies, start-up companies, as well as municipalities, regions and governmental agencies.
During the study, you also have the opportunity for creating your own company.
