Enterprise and Innovation
They say necessity is the mother of invention. But where do ideas for new products and services come from, and how are they translated into solutions and delivered to users?
Why choose discovery modules from Enterprise and Innovation?
Would you like to get better at problem-solving? Got a flair for design or an eye for an opportunity? If so, this Theme is for you.
This Theme brings together knowledge and understanding from business, arts & humanities, engineering, design, environment and social sciences, including the University’s Enterprise Centre, to help you develop the knowledge, problem-solving skills and experience needed to take an idea all the way from concept to reality. Modules from this Theme could help you approach your own subject from a completely different perspective and help you to see new ways to make an impact from what you learn.
Enterprise-related modules allow you to build entrepreneurial (creating new enterprises) and intrapreneurial (changing existing organisations from within) knowledge and skills.
Innovation-related modules explore the full cycle from initial societal need - through to creation, design, prototyping and evaluation of potential solutions to that need – and then ultimately to the processes whereby the product or service is put onto the market.
These are modules about people and society as well as systems and processes.
