Faculty- or Alumnus-Based Project
Focused Upon Social Entrepreneurship or
Technology-Based Economic Development*
The intersection of societal need and economic opportunity is the driver of the national movement toward innovation and "technological relevance." Simply, fundamental advances in medicine and energy are critically needed and concurrently represent huge areas of economic growth at both the individual, corporate and national competitiveness scale.
In this experiential learning course, the students will individually select a topic of interest on which to apply the skills learned throughout the certificate program.
This selected focus will meet the following requirements:
(a) The topic will be aligned to an ongoing program of interest of a current faculty member (or approved alumnus) who will oversee the student-led program;
(b) The intention will be a technology-based approach to a defined problem or a survey/ assessment of the application of given technology base to a real-world problem/opportunity;
(c) The outcome should be a publication-quality thesis that defines the value, limitations and further needs, and suggests a downstream translational approach under the inter-disciplinary lens (i.e., considers the perspectives of management, law and science/engineering).
