Entrepreneurship & Innovation Management
This elective is part of the international full-time engineering degree master programme ‘Master of Space Engineering (MSE)’ at TU Berlin. The goal of the programme is to equip systems engineers to become leaders in the space industry. The MSE study programme focuses on space system design, space technology, space management and operations and intercultural communication.
There is a lot of potential in space technology. A number of space start-ups are founded and large companies and agencies adapt to new technologies using methods of innovation management that are discussed and applied in this module. Innovation Management & Entrepreneurship demonstrates the concepts of innovation, innovation management, and entrepreneurship in a practical hands-on multi-week curriculum.
