ENGR 195 — A new course is being offered this spring by The Henry Samueli School of Engineering. The course, The Northrop Grumman Entrepreneurship Course for Scientists and Engineers, aims to introduce and familiarize science and engineering students with the theory and practice of entrepreneurship.

The course will also introduce the concept of intrapreneurship: entrepreneurship within large corporations. Through a blend of lecture, case study, and experiential learning (presentations by invited industry leaders, and individual and group assignments), students will explore the various organizational, strategic and financial challenges faced by successful and unsuccessful entrepreneurs as they attempt to create and appropriate value from commercializing their innovations. The course will be primarily a practicum, leading to the construction of a commercially viable business plan.

Thus far, confirmed speakers include:

Henry Samueli, Ph.D., co-founder, chairman of the board of directors and chief technical officer of Broadcom Corporation, a leading provider of highly integrated silicon solutions that enable broadband communications and networking of voice, video and data services
