SIAT And Entrepreneurship

"While also participating in the Business of Design Cohort, I was also a SIAT student first, and so I completed several upper-division design courses that involve an entrepreneurial and problem-solving mindset as well. Going into the 2nd half of my 4th year I discovered the Certificate of Entrepreneurship and realized that many of my upper-division classes qualified as a part of the certificate."
