Enhancing Entrepreneurship Engineering Education Program Activities at Mercer University

Mercer University, 2008 - $6,500

The grant is based on existing programs at Mercer run by the School of Engineering Entrepreneurship Engineering Education Program, established in September 2007 with funding from the Kern Family Foundation. This grant will fund two entrepreneurship programs that will bring at least ten students to Vietnam, preparing at least six student teams to present design projects and business plans in the upcoming Industry, Engineering and Management Systems Conference (IEMS), build prototypes of students’ entrepreneurship design projects by the end of May 2009, and establish an entrepreneurship relationship with Vietnamese universities. The IEMS projects are based primarily on prosthetics.
