NYU-Poly Launches Unique Undergrad Forum on Invention, Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Date:10/27/2009

NEW YORK, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- How does a university introduce a cutting-edge academic model, one based on invention, innovation and entrepreneurship?

By rolling blogging together with real-time celebrity lectures (and required attendance) -- all in a first-year forum unlike anything other universities have ever attempted.

Polytechnic Institute of New York University's newest undergraduate course presents 465 first-year students to the joys and rigors of creative thinking in its Innovation and Technology Forum. The forum is the latest entree in the Institute's mission to educate the next generation of global innovators. Other institutions offer graduate courses in entrepreneurship, but NYU-Poly's forum is the first designed specifically for the entire class of first-year students. It is also one of the first to supplement in-class discussions with online learning for such a large number of students.

By introducing students immediately to the curriculum that NYU-Poly calls i-squared-e -- invention, innovation and entrepreneurship -- students become totally immersed in and comfortable with thinking creatively in the fields of science, mathematics and engineering.

The forum is also unusual because undergrads elsewhere rarely have the opportunity to meet and work with the leading inventors, journalists, scientists, business executives and entrepreneurs who are scheduled to be guest lecturers.

"The experience brings i-squared-e to the forefront of our students' educational experience, introduces them to a rigorous multi-disciplinary approach that will guide them in the coming years, encourages scholarly interaction with their peers and faculty and gives them insight into the strategies of successful inventors and entrepreneurs," said Iraj Kalkhoran, as
