Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialization (Certificate)Apply Now
The Graduate Certificate in Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialization (TEC) is a one to two year program designed for working professionals in the Raleigh and Research Triangle community. The TEC certificate is a hands-on, project-based practicum in creating and growing technology-intensive businesses. Students develop knowledge, skills and tools useful for engaging in technology entrepreneurship. We focus on capabilities that are equally relevant to the creation and growth of new ventures or to the creation of innovation within established firms. Students learn and apply a proven structured process (developed at NC State but adopted by many universities and taught on four continents) to evaluate technologies, create and develop product ideas, and construct business proposals to bring technology-based products to market. Students with primarily technical backgrounds and those with primarily business backgrounds gain essential skills in working together productively.
For admission requirements, please visit the admissions website.
The certificate program requires students to complete twelve (12) credit hours with an overall 3.0 GPA in all certificate courses. Credit toward the certificate in a particular course will be given only if a grade of B- or better is earned in that course. All courses in the program must be taken for a letter grade. No transfer credits will be accepted in the program and it must be completed within three years.
