CTEM-broad: Obligatory courses (10 ECTS) / CTEM in-depth: Project (10 ECTS)

Component 3:
• For CTEM-broad:Follow the two courses 1ZM16: Management of Product Development and 1ZM11: Marketing and Innovation. Please note: students of the Innovation Management master (IM) have to follow the courses “Smart Cities” (7LY8M0, 5 ECTS) and “Selling new products” (1ZM60, 5 ECTS), instead of the courses 1ZM16 and 1ZM11.

• For CTEM-in-depth: Follow 1ZSM0: CTEM Project (10 ECTS). Within the project, each student will follow several skills training sessions recommended on the basis of a personal assessment.The most important part of the Project is the development of a business case, that potentially can lead to the actual start of a new venture. The idea for this venture can be a specific proposition you have developed yourself or an idea provided by the staff. In the latter case, you can work on an invention/idea developed at the TU/e or an idea developed by one of our industrial partners (e.g. Heijmans, Philips, Digital EIT, KIC InnoEnergy, Maxima). During the semester in which CTEM Project teams develop their business cases, students will participate in workshops on idea creation, business and market development, finance and risk analysis, and several other domains and skills. Each team will present its case to a panel of experts several times in the semester. Moreover, each team has access to a professional coach, who mentors the team in dealing with the critical hurdles they have to take.
