EG1603 / EG2603 Technopreneurship and Incubation Programme
Do you want to solve real world business problems?
Do you want to be hands on?
Do you want to improve the world using technology?
NOTE: The Technopreneurship & Incubation Program (TIP) is the credit-bearing enhancement program associated with the technopreneurship challenge InnoVenture.
InnoVenture is a yearlong, hands-on experiential learning programme to gain insight, confidence, and basic capabilities about the theoretical and practical aspects of engineering leadership and entrepreneurship.
The programme challenges students from all disciplines to develop viable solutions for real engineering problems faced by MNCs, SMEs and startups.
What’s in it for me?
Students acquire knowledge and skills through experiencing and overcoming the real-life challenges in brainstorming, designing, and prototyping of solutions (“Technical Mastery”), and face-to-face interaction with industry to develop and receive support for their solutions (“Influencing skills”).
What’s the process like?
Students will attend bootcamps to acquire knowledge, meet often with industry mentors to enhance their thinking, work with their peers to develop teamwork and leadership skills, and closely connect with the problem statement representatives to gain real-life experience in working with industry.
The year-long program is split up into 2 phases/semesters. Phase 1 (EG1603) will focus on problem solving and design, while Phase 2 (EG2603) will focus on (hardware) prototyping of the proposed solutions and pitching to industry. Leadership and team development will happen throughout Phase 1 and 2.
What do I have to do to?
To be awarded the credits for (EG1603/2603) you must attend all workshops in each phase, complete the short reflection assignments after each workshop, and pitch successfully at IdeaLaunch and/or DemoDay.
