Program Information

The Technology Innovation Certificate program is designed to provide the background and requisite instruction for students interested in introducing a new product or innovation to the marketplace.  As such, this program is ideal for students interested in entrepreneurial endeavors or for employment with companies that promote a strong intrapreneurial culture.

The Technology Innovation Certificate is available for both undergraduate and graduate students.  The program provides flexibility in course offerings by making use of a variety of courses already available eithe on this campus or elsewhere in the state system.  In addition, every attempt has been made to modularize and invert courses required to meet core requirements.  Specifically, all core requirements may be completed through 1 or 2 credit offerings.  In some cases, core offerings feature classroom inversion which allows some contant to be available through online offerings supplemented with hands and creative problems solving exercises in the classroom.

Philosophically, the program is based on the holistic learner development model which incorporates whole brain thinking, multi-disciplinary team problem solving exercises, and, where ever possible, real world applications in innovation or product development.
