There were lots of good speakers there, and there is plenty to talk about. However, one of the most intriguing aspects of the college’s approach to its new program is how they are building in an entrepreneurial flavor. Course Director Keith Maycock explained that students would have to pitch their final-year project to a panel in a Dragon’s Den type of arrangement.
He said the school has strong commercial links, and the panel would include industry experts, financial people and faculty. Promising projects will be supported in NCI’s on-campus incubator center, Maycock said.
