Entrepreneurship & Technology Management Track

Overview 

The Entrepreneurship and Technology Management Track (ETCM) offers courses in management and entrepreneurship. As with the other BEO tracks, the ETCM builds upon the required foundation courses but requires a higher level of mathematics and a five-course specialization in an engineering area of choice including Biotechnology/BioMaterials, IT and Computer Engineering, and Energy and the Environment among others (see tables below).

It is critical for the ETCM student to meet early and often with their BEO Faculty advisor. The specific area of specialization is designed in close consultation with the BEO Faculty advisor. The tables below provide a summary as well as a detailed listing of courses related to the areas of specialization.
