Step into a world of innovation at CWRU

6 people working on various projects in the think box

At Case Western Reserve University, 98% of engineering students learn by doing. That’s why they graduate prepared for what’s next: employment, graduate school or professional school.

Students enter an entrepreneurial ecosystem at CWRU with the tools and resources they need to turn their innovative ideas into reality. Here are just a few of those resources: 

  • The Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship offers workshops, mentorship, and insights to guide students in developing robust business strategies and securing funding. 
  • Sears think[box], a cutting-edge makerspace (the largest at any university in the U.S.!), fuels creativity by granting students access to advanced equipment, fostering hands-on prototyping and bridging the gap between concept and execution. 
  • Considering the significance of intellectual property, our IP Venture Clinic offers specialized legal guidance, equipping students with the knowledge to navigate patents, trademarks and copyrights.

Not sure if you have an entrepreneurial spark? No problem! By immersing yourself in CWRU's entrepreneurial culture and engaging hands-on, you will develop a unique skill set that extends beyond engineering theory and technical expertise. You will learn to think critically, solve complex problems, embrace risk-taking, and leverage your engineering knowledge to make a real impact in the world.

This entrepreneurial mindset will not only enhance your undergrad engineering experience but also empower you to thrive in fast-paced, innovation-driven environments after graduation.
