Science (SCI)

SCI 470, FOUNDATIONS OF INNOVATION, 2 Credits

Learn the basic language and the initial skill set needed to address how scientific ideas and research results become innovations – solutions that address societal and market needs. Acquire the skills to become innovators and to create value for all types of academic, small-company, industrial, governmental, and non-profit research and development organizations. Students work in areas aligned with their scientific interests either individually or in a team. CROSSLISTED as CH 470/SCI 470 and CH 570/SCI 570.

Equivalent to: CH 470

Recommended: Science and engineering majors

SCI 472, RESEARCH TO INNOVATION, 2 Credits

Produce a first-pass product-market gap analysis on one example application of a science technology platform in a given market. Define a platform in collaboration with research faculty or from work completed in CH 470/SCI 470 or CH 570/SCI 570. Assess the opportunity – if any – that a product might have for application in a chosen market before planning and conducting scientific research. CROSSLISTED as CH 472/SCI 472 and CH 572/SCI 572.
