nnovation Engineering courses give students a complete array of tools and a systematic approach to creating, communicating and commercializing ideas in response to problems and opportunities in any field; they also learn how to lead the process of innovating within organizations—businesses, nonprofits, governments, educational institutions, arts organizations, etc.
