TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Florida A&M University - Florida State University College of Engineering has been selected to participate in a national entrepreneurship program.
The Pathways to Innovation entrepreneurial initiative will help the college incorporate innovation and entrepreneurship into undergraduate education, FSU says.
The college is one of 14 teams selected nationwide. The University of South Florida is the only other Florida university to participate in the program.
FSU says the team will work with other colleges, including the FSU College of Business and The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, to implement some of the ideas and introduce more engineering students to concepts that are part of business students’ everyday educational experience.
Team leaders from the 14 universities met for the first time at Stanford University in November. A second meeting in January 2016 will bring together the entire teams from each university to start developing their individual plans.
