Introduction

The Schulich School of Engineering in partnership with the Haskayne School of Business offers a Minor in Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development (MEED) open to all engineering students. MEED typically commences in Year Two of the engineering program and consists of five Entrepreneurship and Innovation (ENTI) courses, all of which are currently offered by the Haskayne School of Business plus any five fourth-year engineering courses that are taken as part of the normal requirements for the engineering degree. Thus, to satisfy MEED requirements, students must receive credit for 15 units over and above the engineering degree requirements.

Admission

Students apply for admission to MEED at the same time as they apply for their choice of engineering program in their first year. Admission to the MEED program is limited to 50 students. In the event that the number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces available, admission will be decided on the basis of academic performance, using the same process as is used for admission to the engineering program. If students apply later in their program than second year, they will be admitted in order of academic performance according to the number of spaces available. Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible in order that the Haskayne School of Business may plan for the required number of places in the ENTI courses. Application forms are available from and should be submitted to the Engineering Student Centre. Admission to the program depends upon the availability of space in the required ENTI courses.

Requirements

Students must receive credit for 15 units in addition to 15 units fourth-year engineering courses that are part of the undergraduate engineering degree requirements. The five courses that are to be completed in addition to the engineering degree requirements are:

1. Entrepreneurship and Innovation 201

2. Entrepreneurship and Innovation 381

3. Entrepreneurship and Innovation 401

4. Entrepreneurship and Innovation 405

5. One of the following options:

Regulations

Regulations of the Schulich School of Engineering apply to students taking MEED courses. In order to have the Minor in Entrepreneurship and Enterprise Development appear on the student's transcript, the five-course MEED program must be completed before the student graduates.
