The Department of Biomedical, Industrial and Human Factors Engineering, Wright State University's College of Engineering and Computer Science and the Raj Soin College of Business are offering the Master's in Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship program (MEIE). The MEIE program prepares students for innovation and entrepreneurship through seven key goals.

The seven key goals of the program:

  1. To expose students to the concepts of entrepreneurship from both a business and engineering perspective
  2. To emphasize problem solving and creative thinking
  3. To provide first-hand experience in generating a business plan
  4. To provide students with practical industry experience from concept development in preparation for market introduction
  5. To expose students to multiple engineering and business disciplines, and to work in diverse, multi-cultural teams
  6. To provide students the opportunity to interact with, and learn from Dayton area high tech entrepreneurs
  7. To produce graduates who have the technical expertise and the keen understanding of the business environment needed to succeed in entrepreneurial activities
Entrance Requirements
