Senior Design Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Planning Grant)

Drexel University, 2011 - $8,000

This planning grant supports Drexel University in integrating E-Teams into its senior design capstone courses. Currently, the projects are often single-discipline academic exercises, and despite being a co-op university with strong industry relationships and entrepreneurship programs, industry involvement is limited and students rarely pursue ventures. This grant will help encourage multidisciplinary E-Teams by making the courses college-wide, involving sponsorships and partnerships with industry, and integrating entrepreneurship through training, process streamlining, and College of Business partnerships.
