It has been a trend that college students sign up for technology innovation competitions or start their own businesses after graduation, since the "Double First-rate" policy, i.e. building up "double first-rated" universities, has been implemented and the government has always encouraged education on students' innovation and entrepreneurship. A study has been conducted to investigate the status quo of students' innovation and entrepreneurship of Tianjin University through various ways such as case study and field work, questionnaires and interviews, reaching a conclusion that college students lack sufficient knowledge towards innovation and entrepreneurship and that universities should further cultivate students' practical and comprehensive skills. The essay addresses the problems with the aspects of platform construction, policy support and brand activities with the analysis of specific cases.
Entrepreneurship is a key driver of economic growth of a country. However, concerns on uncertainty associated with entrepreneurship drive parents to motivate children during their formative days to aspire for permanent jobs and they grow with that aspiration. Many have provided empirical evidences supporting motivational effect of entrepreneurial education even though formal entrepreneurship education is yet to gain traction in emerging economy, proliferation of which may entail prohibitively huge resources. MOOCs can obviate the need for infrastructure and other resources and can promote entrepreneurial education to a large audience of heterogeneous mix. We argue that MOOCs bring enormous advantages in terms of cost, flexibility of time, breaking geographical boundary, removing entry barrier and promoting entrepreneurial education to a large pool of students and professionals. It can bring about revolutionary change in the mind-set of a generation of youth motivating them to promote entrepreneurial ventures. MOOCs can also play a significant role in a new and fast evolving corporate strategic process of `corporate entrepreneurship' by offering flexible learning opportunity to related employees. Using data from various developed and emerging world we show in this paper that entrepreneurship education is essential for economic growth and quality of life of people of a nation. We also highlight some of the challenges in open teaching and outline the possible contents of such education.
This study investigates the inclination towards entrepreneurship among students of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi MARA. Specifically, it aims to examine the association between the formal entrepreneurship course provided by the university and the electrical engineering students' inclination towards entrepreneurship. The samples for this study were collected through an online questionnaire directed towards semester 2 to semester 8 students. The samples were studied as a whole and then as two groups. The first group comprises of those who have not undergone the entrepreneurship course which is being offered in Semester 6 and the other is made up of those who have. Our initial findings show that in general more that 50% of the students are inclined towards entrepreneurship but in the short term, it is not evident if the entrepreneurship course made any immediate impact to increase the inclination towards entrepreneurship. A more rigorous analysis is required to draw substantial conclusions on this complex issue.
Unemployment and un-employability are some of most prevailing problems in our society. Entrepreneurship education has been viewed as a solution to the same. The aim of this study is to analyse different aspects of entrepreneurship education. The main aspects that have been studied here are-Entrepreneurship education programs, Teaching and assessment and Entrepreneurship education in non-business disciplines. It is found that the entrepreneurship education programs are gaining recognition in higher education institutes. But the programs need to be different from the conventional educational programs as entrepreneurship involves more of right brain thinking. Teaching of entrepreneurship has to be action oriented with focus on development of behavioural and attitudinal competencies. The learning can be enhanced through group discussions, workshops, presentations, solving cases studies, interacting with real entrepreneurs, developing business plan and implementation at later stages. The assessment techniques need to be different from the conventional system of examination as the learning outcomes are in the form of behavioural competencies and motivation. The study highlights the significance of entrepreneurship education for non-business disciplines. Non- business disciplines are able to give birth to more number of start-ups as they have many product ideas, which they can convert into business ideas if they are equipped with knowledge of entrepreneurship. This study is useful for policymakers and academicians as it provides an insight into different aspects of entrepreneurship education programs for universities and other higher education institutes.
This work will present preliminary results from a study of entrepreneurship programs serving undergraduate engineering students. The purpose of the study is to examine questions relating to students' perceptions and understanding of entrepreneurship education. In addition, the study addresses faculty members' perceptions of entrepreneurship education including the critical skills and concepts that should be taught. To address these questions, we developed a study to better understand the faculty and students who are engaged in engineering entrepreneurship teaching and learning. Entrepreneurship program directors were asked to identify program faculty who were teaching in spring 2012. Faculty completed a comprehensive questionnaire about their beliefs and practices regarding entrepreneurship education, focusing on a specific course they were teaching in the spring 2012 semester. They were also asked to invite their students in this course to complete a questionnaire that asked students about their prior entrepreneurship experiences, familiarity with technology entrepreneurship concepts, and attitudes towards entrepreneurship. In addition, students were asked to indicate entrepreneurship resources they had used on their campuses. This study will provide systematic data from a variety of institutions about faculty who teach entrepreneurship and the students they teach. We expect that this knowledge will provide an important baseline against which future improvements in the field can be identified and assessed.
Sustaining interest in STEM subjects throughout the academic career is often the key to a successful STEM career. Maintaining a “STEM-interested” student body can potentially have significant long-term implications for the success of the future STEM workforce. In many cases, students who initially like STEM subjects begin to lose interest in STEM subjects during middle school years. This work-in-progress paper explores the findings of the second year of STEM- Inc, an afterschool program in junior high schools that combines team-based, real-world engineering and computer science projects with business entrepreneurship concepts. One of the important goals of the program is to sustain student interest in STEM subjects and make them aware of STEM careers. Participants are supervised by college student mentors in partnership with school teachers. Traditionally underrepresented students form a significant component of STEM-Inc. While interest in STEM activities, teamwork and entrepreneurial confidence for students were positively influenced in year 2, no significant improvements were observed in STEM skills and interest in STEM fields. STEM-Inc also had considerable positive influences on college student mentors and school teachers. Two mentors reported that they are considering a career in STEM education after their involvement in STEM-Inc. School teachers reported being confident in the inclusion of engineering examples and the design process in their math and science courses.
Significant growth of entrepreneurship programs have been reported to have been offered to engineering students as the complex challenges in the 21stcentury has called for higher learning institutions to produce entrepreneurial engineers. Nevertheless, integrating entrepreneurship into the engineering curriculum is still relatively a new movement and it has been reported that introducing entrepreneurship principles and practices to engineering students is poorly understood. To date, little has been done to define the appropriate content of entrepreneurship education for engineering students. In view of this issue, this paper seek to discuss the possible definition of entrepreneurship education for future engineering graduate by discussing the possible answers to the question; `what does entrepreneurship education mean to future engineering graduates'?
We describe results from a semester-long class taught by seven faculty at George Mason University, aimed at providing resources to engage students in idea generation, design cycle development, and finally elaboration of a business plan. This is intended to alleviate a perceived lack of access for students to commercialize their ideas. Undergraduate and graduate students are often left with unfinished class projects that do not turn into prototypes or products. Here we aim to avoid this outcome (often referred to as the “Valley of Death”). We recruited students with ideas for products as well as students with varied expertise. We have then formalized their engagement by offering a seminar class that met once every other week over a 15 week semester. After the class each team underwent a one-week intensive boot camp for a final demonstration and presentation of their product and business plan. Throughout the semester the teams solicited and received micro-grants, then used the financial support to acquire materials to prototype several iterations of their ideas. In this paper we present data from our preliminary analysis of two successful teams. Out of five teams who took the class, three completed, and two continued with their products beyond the class. We also discuss strategies to engage students, to form viable teams, to provide technical support, and to deliver content in a non-traditional environment, with students from different backgrounds (e.g., sociology, civil engineering, computer science) enrolled both in undergraduate and graduate programs.
Start-Up formation and execution can be a daunting proposition for a technologist. The uncertainty and number of unknowns translate into substantial risk, which can discourage an engineer from even starting a company. One approach to address that risk is through instruction; by understanding the path through the start-up process, the variability is decreased and confidence can be cultivated. Although there are several approaches to teaching technology entrepreneurship, these approaches have biases which create limitations with regards to the focus, scope, and applicability of the training. This paper presents a framework for technology entrepreneurship instruction that addresses these issues. The foundation of this approach is based on a map called Aha to Exit. This map is outlines a process that covers the entire path of a start-up (ideation to harvest), integrates the best practice models, and addresses the barrier of entry issues for entrepreneurs. This map is employed by professionals as well as students.
