United Arab Emirates University (UNITED ARAB EMIRATES)
Teaching Students entrepreneurship at School and higher education levels is a very important part in educating tomorrow’s Engineering leaders. For this we developed a higher education capstone course where students put their one year and a half knowledge in practice. The delivery of the course was devised in a five stepped delivery plan, including (i) a lecture (ii) Case study analysis (iii) innovation paper (iv) team work outside the class and (v) a project feasibility report exercise.

The intention of the delivery is to educate, the students following the Master of Engineering Management program at UAE University, six different educational approaches for entrepreneurship education. These approaches were identified and analyzed by Duening & Sherrill [4]. Three of these approaches, business plan approach, case study approach and entrepreneurial personality approach, were chosen and assigned to the students to produce feasibility study reports. The paper describes the course and its assessment tools used for evaluating, and the use of the chosen one of these approaches by students in writing the feasibility study report. In this paper we also would like to show our experience in enhancing engineering learning by the above mentioned approaches.
