Lehigh offers a one year professional degree program in Technical Entrepreneurship, which is unlike any University out there. Recently they had an open house at Wilbur Powerhouse, and the new class will start classes on July 5th. What makes this program so special though is definitely the idea of product development and really diving into bringing products to market. From what I understood from the open house was that they conduct this program much like the groups at IDEO. They focus on answering the hard questions and really getting immersed in a problem. Students are pushed to look deeper and push the envelope. Like a lot of programs in the Baker Institute there is a lot of learning by doing, and not just sitting in a lecture hall. This is definitely a very interesting program that graduating mechanical engineers should look into, especially if you are looking to start your own company.
