Master of Entrepreneurship & Innovation Students Get Down to Business

On a campus tour during their orientation, MEI students encounter engineering students in traditional Frosh Week attire.

True to its name, the Master of Entrepreneurship & Innovation (MEI) program welcomed its inaugural class the week of September 8 by showcasing innovation hubs on campus. As part of their orientation, MEI students toured the campus and visited the SparQ labs and the Polymer Characterization Lab. These and other state-of-the-art facilities are available to MEI students for use in experimenting with product design and other creative aspects of launching a new business. 

After their first full week of classes, the students each pitched a business idea and were then critiqued on both the style and content of their presentations. This exercise enabled them to practise their skills in advance of their final project — the pitching of a fully formed business idea to a panel of entrepreneurs and industry experts.
