Sherman Center Values

Our Mission

Our mission is to enable interdisciplinary student entrepreneurship in the broadest sense by providing education about tools, concepts, and resources to foster creativity and the ability to develop commercially viable ideas.

Since its opening in May 2014, the new program’s cur­riculum is designed to arm engi­neering students with the appro­priate entre­pre­neurial skills to suc­cess­fully pitch and com­mer­cialize their inno­va­tions. Work­shops and courses are led by Northeastern fac­ulty and inno­va­tors from industry.

What we offer



REV is an exciting mentoring program that seeks to guide engineers through the Northeastern University entrepreneurial ecosystem toward venture creation by connecting entrepreneurial engineers with engineering alumni.


Generate is a student-run product development studio with the goals of creating, educating, and growing product-driven engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs.


The Sherman Center Co-op provides entrepreneurial engineers the opportunity to focus solely on their own ventures for a six month co-op period, and are financially supported via alumni philanthropy during this time.

Minor & Courses

The Entrepreneurial Engineering Minor is designed for the technology-minded entrepreneur who seeks to understand disciplinary fundamentals, assess market needs, create technologies, and determine how to manufacture solutions sustainably and economically.
