Technology Innovation Concentration

The Technology Innovation concentration instills an entrepreneurial mindset in BU’s engineering students, preparing them to recognize and exploit opportunities for technical innovations that can lead to viable commercial products and profitable businesses. These students epitomize the Societal Engineer, dedicated to using creative problem-solving skills and global awareness to solve some of society’s most pressing challenges. They benefit greatly from the concentration’s focus on understanding the innovation and entrepreneurial process from start to finish.

The four-course, 16-credit concentration is open to all ENG undergraduates who have declared a major, and adds another dimension to the bachelor’s degree at a time when the demand for engineers with hands-on experience in interdisciplinary fields is growing. The Technology Innovation concentration helps prepare students to work more effectively as engineers in any field and organization, and provides a launching pad for advancement into future management and leadership positions.
