Technological change is transforming the way we live, work, learn and communicate, which means that there's a vital skills gap for scientists with entrepreneurship and leadership skills. This inventive degree provides you with training and immersive experience in how to take cutting-edge ideas in scientific disciplines from conception through development to realisation. It also builds skills in entrepreneurship, leadership and innovation, as they apply to a range of scientific fields, supported by advanced technologies. KEY FEATURES This multi-disciplinary program will equip you with specialised knowledge and skills to create and develop innovative, practical ideas in your chosen area within science, technology and statistics. Besides leadership, innovation and entrepreneurship, you'll undertake advanced scientific study in an area of your choice. An essential component is an internship in a professional working environment: in industry, an R&D organisation or a world-leading academic research lab, for observing real-word innovation in practice, depending on your career path. You'll be taught by entrepreneurs and science leaders.
