E-ship Engineering Entrepreneurship Innovation Development Directive at the University of Colorado at Boulder

University of Colorado - Boulder, 2009 - $7,500

This grant will create the E-ship Innovation Development Directive at UC Boulder. The program will integrate three existing programs at UC: the E-ship program (an engineering entrepreneurship program), engineering senior design projects, and the Engineers Without Borders program. The E-ship program focuses on Engineer 2.0, today’s fast-paced, competitive engineering. The Engineers Without Borders program supports programs that implement sustainable engineering projects. It currently has over 400 projects in 47 countries. The objectives of the new program are the sponsorship of a senior design project team to work with a project leader from the Engineers Without Borders program in developing an innovation for underserved communities.
