“The development of an international and highly innovative Master's programme is an iterative and dynamic process. Master’s in Energy Technologies decided to transform core activities of its Innovation & Entrepreneurship Journey to connect closer to industry and practical learning through hands-on approach. The UnternehmerTUM is a perfect match supporting our vision. Offering long-term success in innovation and entrepreneurship education and the strong connection to the German Entrepreneurship ecosystem, we are glad to have UnternehmerTUM contributing to training our students to become successful entrepreneurs!” – Andreas Class, Master’s in Energy Technologies Director.

A competitive edge

To help students play their part in the clean energy transition ahead, their engineering and technical knowledge must be combined with commercial awareness and an entrepreneurial spirit. This is why EIT InnoEnergy is helping to motivate students that want to be entrepreneurs by giving them access this safe and controlled learning environment. Students will learn how to systematically identify entrepreneurial opportunities, design and validate technology-based business models, test new products and services with the help of prototypes, and engage with potential partners, customers and users. What they learn on their journey is far beyond what can ever be taught in a classroom alone, and increases the probability of their success in a highly competitive market!
