Course contents *

Entrepreneurship for engineers is an integrating course on the basics of entrepreneurship and innovation management. The course focuses on specialised understanding of aspects as idea generation, technology-based entrepreneurship, marketing and markets, organisation and project management, new product and process development, entrepreneurship, finance and human resource development. There is a focus on the ICT sector.

The course is carried out through lectures, digital e-learning modules, idea-screening, group projects and a final individual work.

Only the final individual work is used for grading (written assignment). However, the written assignment is of such nature that the course in its entirety and its continuous work is tested in the written assignment. The written assignment is a so called "Venture Paper" where a complete business plan is submitted.

  1. Describe and explain the general process and the roles that are involved in developing an idea and starting a new technology-based company
  2. Analyse and evaluate company organisation and projects, customers, markets, finance and personnel issues when starting up a new technology-based company
