The Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Technology
The SCET Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Technology is open to any UC Berkeley student from any major. There is also no application to be able to pursue the Certificate, only a completion application. Students can earn the Certificate by completing any of our three tracks: coursework, startup, or study abroad.
Our courses in entrepreneurship and innovation are open to all Cal students, regardless of major–we welcome students from diverse backgrounds because we believe that the collision of different perspectives and skills generates new and exciting ideas.

I've found a home at SCET. Over the past few semesters, I've grown immensely, having met very inspiring people and doing things I never expected to such as conducting research and helping run classes. I'm extremely lucky to be here, and can't wait for more exciting experiences!”
