What is the Certificate?

The SCET Certificate in Entrepreneurship & Technology offers UC Berkeley undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to learn about technology innovation and entrepreneurship through the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship, an award-winning teaching method that was developed at SCET. In our classes, students will learn from experts in their fields, as well as their classmates, and address real-world problems through hands-on group projects. Students have the chance to build networks, learn how to start and grow their own startup, and strengthen transferable skills in areas such as leadership, teamwork, and communication. The mindsets and skills introduced in SCET classes prepare students to become innovative leaders in their industry, jobs or ventures regardless of the field.
