Berkeley Undergraduate Engineering Leadership Program


Inspiring Future Entrepreneurial Leaders

Along with the advanced skills and technical understanding gained from attending a world-class engineering school, the UELP offers new engineers the opportunity to take their expertise a step further. This program utilizes courses available at our Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology to help students gain insight into leadership, entrepreneurship, commercialization, and innovation. Available individually or as part of a program sequence, CET courses are taught with the input of executives and entrepreneurs, and are designed to combine classroom study with experiential learning.

An introduction to CET Programs

For those exploring the CET for the first time, we recommend the Distinguished Innovator Lecture Series. Bringing real world innovators and issues into the classroom, these classes offer an exciting introduction to the CET course model. Since each speaker is new and topical, these classes may be repeated.

Go Deeper

For students interested in greater depth and highly applied project experiences, the CET offers a number of evolving project classes that include new venture creation, leadership projects, and technology development projects.

The Complete CET Experience

The 6-unit CET Concentration in Engineering Leadership is ideal for students interested in the full program sequence. This concentration empowers students to become technology leaders through classroom and hands-on study of entrepreneurship and commercialization.
