Innovation Scholars

As an Innovation Scholar, you develop an entrepreneurial and leadership mindset, discover what motivates you to be an engineer, and learn how you can make an impact by becoming an innovator.

Innovation Scholars will learn about the important role of innovation and entrepreneurship in engineering. Students will learn about and develop their entrepreneurial mindset by identifying problems in the world around them, addressing them by creating value-driven innovations, and learning from and connecting with experts who have made an impact. Students will discover a variety of resources available on campus and participate in experiential opportunities to shadow innovators, attend innovation-focused events, and develop their own pathway to innovative impact.

Innovation Scholars create impact in a variety of contexts, including in startups, non-profit organizations, and large companies! Students will explore innovation and entrepreneurial opportunities offered on campus and through the Technology Entrepreneur Center including certifications and the ILEE dual degree.
