Engineering Entrepreneurship Minor
The Engineering Entrepreneurship (E-SHIP) minor was the original undergraduate minor in entrepreneurship at Penn State, and one of the very first minors in entrepreneurship housed in a college of engineering in the entire country. Since 2003, the E-SHIP program has graduated more than 500 students that come from many different colleges at Penn State, including Engineering, Business, IST and Communications.
In 2013, Penn State made the decision to significantly expand the program creating the Intercollege Minor in Entrepreneurship (ENTI). This program provides a greater opportunity for Penn State students to take entrepreneurship classes that are specific to their interest. After taking three core courses in the ENTI Program, students can then select from an approved cluster in a specific college.
As part of this change, the E-SHIP program of is now the Technology Based Entrepreneurship cluster in the Intercollege Minor and is focused on helping students who have an interest in developing and commercializing hardware and software products, and generally speaking, working in technology oriented industries.
