ENGR 4302. ENGINEERING ENTREPRENEURSHIP. 3 Hours.

Topics include special problems of newly formed firms, planning, start-up business considerations, business strategy, management basics, and business plan design. Students will engage in business and entrepreneurship training and discussion, become aware of basic business operations, and learn about inventions, intellectual property, and the patenting process. Other topics include assessment of possible markets, venture feasibility, teambuilding, and leadership. Opportunities in university environments will be discussed including incubation centers and patent licensing. We address legal issues, Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) proposal design, SBIR funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and others. Additional topics include the proposal review process, grant reporting, local high-tech business accelerators, angel-group funding, venture plans, and venture capital. Classes will feature lectures from engineering and business faculty as well as presentations by successful entrepreneurs. Course taught as EE 4302, ENGR 4302 and ENGR 5302; credit will be granted only once. Prerequisite: Student must be in an engineering professional program.

ENGR 4395. SUSTAINABLE ENGINEERING DESIGN PROJECT. 3 Hours.

Following the engineering design process, students will brainstorm, evaluate, and select among engineering alternatives. Students will evaluate the alternatives based on sustainability criteria, including environmental, economic, and social impacts. Life cycle assessment will be used to quantify environmental and economic impacts of the design alternatives. Students will use decision-making methods and optimization in selecting among alternatives. Prerequisites: ENGR 2300, IE 3315, ECON 2305 or IE 2308.
