Entrepreneurship for Electrical & Computer Engineers addresses the unique challenges Electrical and Computer Engineers face when commercializing their inventions. This three-credit hour course teaches how to use design tools to enable global manufacture of designs, including schematic computer-aided design (CAD) and printed circuit board layout tools, the development of engineering-oriented business plans, licensing models, and using patents and other types of intellectual property to protect ideas. It includes a major project in which students teams evaluate the commercial potential for a device, design the supporting CAD documents for third-party manufacturing, develop a supporting business plan, and draft a patent application. Elective course, junior priority. Prerequisite(s): EE 223
