An Academic/ Industrial Partnership
Innovation Engineering is recognized as a new field of academic study and management science. It’s offered as an Undergraduate Minor, a Graduate Certificate and as an off campus Executive Education program. A PhD program is also in development.
On college and university campuses students are taught how Innovation Engineering will enable them to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities in the new economy. Or, to get really blunt, we explain how it will help them: 1) get a job, 2) get promoted and or 3) turn their ideas for a new business or social change into reality faster and with less risk.
In organizations, the courses teach leaders, managers and front-line workers how to innovate everywhere, every day - no matter their job title or experience level. The courses teach them a discipline and structure for innovation that makes it a reproducible and reliable system.
