Entrepreneurship & Engineering Innovation
Temple University became a member of the 2015 cohort of 25 schools participating in the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter). Epicenter is funded by the National Science Foundation and directed by Stanford University and VentureWell (formerly NCIIA). One of the elements of participation involves redesigning the capstone senior design curriculum to make it more innovation and entrepreneurship oriented and as such have a positive impact on student satisfaction. This paper details the expectations of students beginning a two-course sequence in the capstone curriculum. The student survey data led to a rebalancing of the curriculum to one that was solely based on “how to do” senior design projects to one that still includes “how-to-do" lecture themes but now includes lecture themes in innovation and entrepreneurship. The paper also provides information that will be used to continuously improve the course.
