Innovation Certificate

Innovation is an essential skill for identifying and solving problems in many fields. The Innovation Certificate creates an explicit opportunity for students to participate in the activities of innovation through coursework in design, entrepreneurship, prototyping, content creation, leadership, and creativity.

The Innovation Certificate is an interdisciplinary 12-credit certificate, which is itself flexible and innovative by design. This certificate has two parts: a customizable set of six 1-credit elective courses selected by a student to suit their individual interests, and the two capstone courses CIE 401: Creative Collaboration and CIE 402: Digital Portfolio.

Students will learn to isolate and communicate desired goals, forge networks across disciplines, share their individual skillsets, and operate collaboratively within an innovative ecosystem. The Innovation Certificate will uniquely combine focused training in contemporary applied fields as integrated and intertwined with broad liberal arts, entrepreneurial, and design skills.
