This lecture series recognizes the entrepreneurial vision of A. Richard Newton, Dean of UC Berkeley’s College of Engineering from 2000 to 2007, by inviting distinguished innovators to share lessons from their own successes and failures. The course features a selection of highly accomplished industry speakers, including Cal alumni, who share their unique insights on industry developments, leadership, and innovation accumulated through experience in their careers. The lecture series serves as a discovery course for topics at the intersection of technology innovation and entrepreneurship and is a requirement for two of the tracks to complete the SCET Certificate in Entrepreneurship & Technology.
This class is a great introductory class for students interested in learning more about technology entrepreneurship and innovation. SCET classes welcome students from all majors and levels.
Beginning in Spring 2021, the A. Richard Newton Lecture series became an official Berkeley Changemaker® course. Berkeley Changemaker® is a way to help engineers, humanists, and scientists on campus understand their passion and have the ability to create change and have agency in the world. The A. Richard Newton Series course helps students understand how to pursue their interests and execute them by learning from distinguished innovators.
Note: Starting Fall 2022, all SCET classes will be offered under Engineering course numbers. Prior to Fall 2022, this course was listed under INDENG 95/195/295.
