Overview

The Technology Innovation and Entrepreneurship course from University of Bristol will teach you how to apply your existing undergraduate degree knowledge whilst developing your design skills and commercial understanding, including:

  • Starting up your career and ideas in a professional supported environment
  • Undertaking applied commercial projects in collaborative teams
  • Learning human-centred techniques for designing and developing ideas of real value

We welcome students from any technology-based discipline who are thinking about building a career either in technology-focused organisations or start-ups.

This programme shares much of its teaching with our other MSc and MA Innovation and Entrepreneurship programmes but focuses specifically on the development and deployment of technology to create new value.

During the programme you get opportunities to work alongside  technology businesses to develop a deep understanding of their opportunities and challenges.

Careers

'Workers with design skills are 47% more productive in their jobs and whilst already contributing £209bn to the UK economy and that value is growing at a faster rate than the rest of the economy.' (Design Council, 2018)

You may create an entrepreneurial venture or join an existing one. Whatever you choose, you will be able to hit the ground running.

You will graduate with a portfolio of work that shows what you can do - you may even have an emergent venture. You will have built a network of contacts to draw on whether you are starting-up or seeking innovative roles.

Programme Structure

  • The degree is delivered through practical units on innovation-led entrepreneurial skills, design and systems thinking, and developing and prototyping ideas. 
  • In the first term, you will learn about human-centred design thinking to develop innovations that create value by meeting real human needs. This involves understanding your target audience and the issues facing them, and developing and testing ideas for possible solutions.  
  • In the second term, you will explore solutions for a real-world client, iterating to develop an unexpected range of possibilities and creating prototypes to test with customers or users. You will learn about different kinds of enterprise, how to explore your ideas from a business perspective and how to place them in the appropriate context. 
  • In your final project over the summer, you will pull together all you have learned to create an innovative product or service as an entrepreneurial or innovative new venture.
