Rajendra Mishra School of Engineering Entrepreneurship was established in 2010, inspired by the momentous growth of entrepreneurship and the consequent economic development sweeping across nations in the recent years, with the vision to fuel innovation-driven engineering entrepreneurship in the country. The foundation of the initiative was pre-emptively laid long ago by establishing the Science & Technology Entrepreneurship Park (STEP) and the Technology Incubation & Entrepreneurship Training Society (TIEST) nurturing budding entrepreneurs since 1986. Number of successful entrepreneurial ventures speaks volumes of the relevance of such pursuits.
The faculty team with diverse specializations in the School has woven an interdisciplinary fabric of dexterity needed for entrepreneurial support and is in the process of developing germane curriculum and creating and infrastructure, including establishing state of the art laboratories to facilitate, Product Analytics & Modelling, Reverse Engineering, Innovative Product Development, Business Analytics, Healthcare Analytics, Energy, etc. Being part of a well-diversified engineering Institution, the School also shares the centralized research infrastructure as also departmental facilities for multidisciplinary product development initiatives. A rich pool of research scholars and the postgraduate students are engaged in cutting edge research and are developing new generation technology, products and processes in both specialised as well as in cross-functional domains.
The school offers masters course in Engineering Entrepreneurship for dual degree students as also multidisciplinary doctoral research program. Besides, it offers Micro-specialization on Entrepreneurship and Innovation to undergraduate students of all disciplines, thereby bringing in a wide array of students within the fold of entrepreneurial education.The school also governs the student-run entrepreneurship-Cell (e-Cell) that organizes, among other things the annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) participated by students from colleges and universities across the country. Thus, the School is poised to give, through its activity continuum starting with innovative design conceptualisation with its realisation and finally culminating into entrepreneurial promotion, a thrust to the 'Make in India' initiative by providing an environment that inspires creative thinking and motivates entrepreneurial pursuits.
