STEM Entrepreneurship

The STEM Entrepreneurship bachelor of science program embodies the foundations of entrepreneurship with the technical rigor and fundamentals from science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Students coming in to the STEM Entrepreneurship program will choose a focus area in STEM to take a deeper dive into the discipline of their choice. This deeper dive will consist of completion of the respective STEM department’s requirements for a minor/track. Three additional specially designed courses are offered in this program that are aimed at further enhancing students’ understanding, experience and skillsets with science entrepreneurship in the real world: STEM Computer Applications and Data Science Entrepreneurship, STEM Product Development and STEM Research Methods. Upon graduation, students will be equipped to found their own STEM-based ventures, join other STEM ventures, begin careers with large corporations that focus on STEM-enabled offerings or move on to graduate degrees in entrepreneurship. The graduated students of the Jim Moran College STEM Entrepreneurship program represent a new breed of formally educated entrepreneurs that have the focus and abilities to work in the arena of innovating and commercializing science and technology.

In the first two years at FSU, students should take courses in the following areas: General Education requirements, Multicultural Core requirements, and Prerequisite Coursework requirements. Some courses may fulfill requirements in multiple areas. Electives in the first two years should focus on gaining additional exposure to the social and behavioral sciences, and on improving communication and analytical reasoning skills.
