Be a part of designing, building and testing solutions for active complex problems critical to the government around national security, energy networks, cyber security and AI. Invent new technologies with a team of peers. An opportunity offered at a variety of universities allowing students to develop a deep understanding of the problems and needs of government partners in the Department of Defense.

In the Hacking for Defense class, student teams will learn how to apply lean startup principles to discover and validate customer needs and to continually refine solutions. Students will work closely with their problem sponsors, mentors, and military liaisons, to develop minimum viable products (MVPs) and prototypes that match DOD/IC users’ needs by the end of the semester.

Students from all disciplines are encouraged to enroll — this course is strongest when students from a variety of disciplines, backgrounds and experiences join together to think through and solve some of today’s most pressing national security challenges.

Engineers and scientists around the globe launch high-tech companies to move their ideas to the market are invited to sign up for FSE/TEM 494/598: Technology Commercialization. The course is designed specifically for engineers. Topics are approached from the perspective of the student whose primary interest is in technological innovation, whose primary concentration is engineering and students who have little or no prior business education.

Studies show that the majority of innovative products and services in the economy evolve from entrepreneurial ventures. By providing knowledge and skills important to the creation and leadership of such startups, this Technology Commercialization course aims to train the founders and leaders of tomorrow’s high-tech ventures in the domains of assumption/hypothesis-testing, customer-focused discovery processes, and business modeling, while also covering important aspects related to technological intellectual property generation, protection, and strategy.

This three-credit course taught by Brent Sebold will help you get ahead.
