Device Design and Entrepreneurship Pathway

Entrepreneurship (focusing on commercialization of medical technologies)

This area emphasizes highly nontraditional work in that its primary goal is the commercialization of a novel biomedical technology, device or application developed by the student. Students in this track will have bioengineering, clinical, and business co-mentors. Students will spend substantial time learning and applying strategies for starting up biomedical technology companies. This area is applicable to students interested in starting up biomedical technology companies. This specialization also takes advantage of the presence of the CU School of Medicine at CU Denver, as well as the Fitzsimmons Bioscience Park on the Anschutz Medical Campus, and is thus a unique component of the CU Denver bioengineering program.

Please see our Admissions information page for details about prior academic training, minimum GPAs and preferred GRE scores.
