Abstract

This paper argues that in facilitating engineering students to be entrepreneurial, it is not enough to provide them with good entrepreneurship education. They must be surrounded by an environment which encourages the practice of entrepreneurship. At the University of Strathclyde, many different departments work together to provide this environment, and tangible results are evident. The number of student business startups is rising and interest is growing among major employers in Strathclyde's 'entrepreneurial' graduates.
