A special capstone course for senior electrical and mechanical engineering students has been developed at the University of Nevada, Reno. The class also includes MBA students from the College of Business Administration. All phases of new product development including innovation, patent law, product liability, business, sales, marketing and venture capital are covered. This paper presents a brief description of the course and the assess- ment results. The assessment results indicate that the learning objectives are being met and that students strongly feel that in- vention and entrepreneurship should be part of the engineering curriculum.
