CHEE 410 Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship

CHEE 410  Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship  Units: 3.50  

This is a course about innovation - distinctive ideas, of value, put to practice - and entrepreneurship - the process of putting to practice and sustaining the implementation of innovations - for societal benefit and wealth creation. Curiosity of the world around us is emphasized for identifying opportunities to have an impact and make a difference, to which a discipline is imposed - one that identifies who might be interested in or benefit from our product or service, and how we can bring an idea to fruition and bring the necessary resources (e.g., financial, intellectual) to provide it to society. Legal aspects (e.g., incorporation, partnerships), raising capital, and protecting the strategic advantage of intellectual property (e.g., patents, trade secrets) are discussed, together with the importance of having a social acceptance to operate. The concept of a business model, summarized using the business model canvas methodology, is presented, together with the concept of a business plan describing how a venture will be operated over a time horizon. For-profit and not-for-profit ventures, and the elements of the business models for each, are studied and compared, and intrapreneurship/entrepreneurship are compared. Financial metrics for assessing the viability of ventures and guiding investment decisions are reviewed. Systems Thinking (recognizing the whole/parts and that which is common/distinct) is introduced. Design Thinking - a human-centered design emphasizing observation and insight - is presented, along with journey maps and personas for understanding customer segments. Diffusion of innovations is described, including the factors influencing adoption of innovations, and the manner in which innovations propagate in society. Working in groups, students identify a venture opportunity having a technological component, and propose a business model and plan as the major evaluation in the course.

The Chemical Engineering department is based in Dupuis Hall, which is a multi-purpose facility with extensive research laboratories, and large-and small-group teaching classrooms. Department researchers in the bioengineering and bioremediation fields also have laboratory facilities in the multi-disciplinary Biosciences complex, Nicole Hall, and in the Centre for Health Innovation at Kingston General Hospital.  We are a medium-sized department, with sufficient size to ensure a breadth of research activities, yet small enough to foster a cohesive learning environment. Research serials and books are housed in the Engineering and Science Library, and a variety of search and document delivery facilities are available on-line. Research is being conducted in the fields of materials and interfaces, bioengineering, sustainable energy sources, and data analytics, optimization and control. Facilities within the polymer and reaction engineering field include a variety of bench and pilot scale polymerization reactors (gas-phase polyolefin, solution and emulsion free-radical, living-radical and condensation polymer systems), polymer processing equipment (twin-screw extruder, Haake internal mixer), rotational and capillary rheometers, fuel cell equipment, and the biomedical research facilities include cell and tissue culture labs. The Chemical Engineering Analytical Facility (ChEAF) was established for the measurement of polymeric physical, thermal and structural properties, and is supported by the Senior Research Engineer. Physical measurements and chemical analyses are carried out using a variety of instruments such as gas chromatographs, elemental analyzer, HPLCs, gel permeation chromatographs, BET surface area analyzer, capillary hydro-dynamic fractionation submicron particle size analyzer, spectrophotometers, IR, FTIR, GC mass spectroscopy, and also by means of novel probes based in light scattering, absorption and fluorescence. Research computations are conducted using a wide range of symbolic computation, numerical analysis, statistical analysis and process simulation software.  The research laboratories are supported by two departmental laboratory technologists while the computing facilities are supported by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science Information Technology Group.
