Entrepreneurship & Engineering Innovation
The author served as Dean of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Ottawa from 2006 to 2016. Building on a solid foundation (undergraduate option in engineering management and entrepreneurship, graduate program of studies in engineering management) that had been in place for more than 20 years at the time, the author championed the creation and implementation of a number of activities, initiatives, and programs aimed at increasing the exposure of undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of entrepreneurship, design, and innovation: Entrepreneurship and Innovation Endowment Fund (EIEF), Entrepreneurship Bridges Lecture (EBL) series, Prizes in Entrepreneurship and Innovation (PEI) student competitions, Brunsfield Group Engineering Student Projects and Entrepreneurship Centre, Faculty Coordinator for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Chair in Entrepreneurial Engineering Design (CEED1), Centre for Entrepreneurship and Engineering Design (CEED2), Richard L'Abbé Makerspace. The proposed paper will address the main issues associated to and lessons learned for each of these different initiatives: purpose and objectives, implementation and delivery, funding and support (internal and external), outcomes.
