Now more than ever, innovative companies require engineers who can be technical experts as well as strategic managers and directors. The next generation of leaders will need a unique combination of technical horsepower, entrepreneurial ability, and business judgment. ELPP readies technical professionals for the next step in their career by augmenting their analytical skills with proven business methodology and techniques. Our recently updated syllabus reflects today's challenges. New sessions help rising tech leaders innovate under adversity, enabling innovation that matters now.
Created for engineers by an engineer, the program builds off the Innovation Engineering framework from chief scientist and SCET founding director, Ikhlaq Sidhu. His proven platform for education utilizes theory, networking, and interactive practice to build a strong repertoire of skills in the technology leader.

The Engineering Leadership Professional Program's Technology focus makes it time and cost effective for rising technical leaders in technology firms.
There is no such thing as a management-only track in Silicon Valley. For technical leaders, the MBA can often be too broad and possibly counter-productive for career development in technology firms. This program builds on the core skills of technical managers, engineers, and scientists. It is focused on technology firm situations and is condensed into only 4 1/2 months. The ELPP program offers career building skills that solve real problems in technology firms specifically for engineering directors, lead architects, technical product managers, business development leads, CTO office members, and other key technical staff.
