NC State and CSC provide several ways undergraduate students can engage in entrepreneurship as part of their coursework and in a broader entrepreneurial community. Students can customize the CSC Restricted and Other Restricted Electives as part of the CSC major to start working on their entrepreneurial ideas as part of their degree.
Completion of the Entrepreneurship Track requires 13 hours of coursework that can fit within the CSC Restricted and Other Restricted Electives. CSC is partnering with the Engineering Entrepreneurs Program (EEP) to support the CSC Undergraduate Entrepreneurship Track.
