Why is TMP partnering with Extension for the Technology Entrepreneurship Certificate (TEC)?
The TEC is now being offered in partnership with UC Extension so that UCSB undergraduates have the opportunity to earn a "UC-recognized" certificate.
How will this benefit me?
The "UC-recognized" certificate demonstrates to prospective employers evidence of recent professional-level training in this field.
How do I apply for the Technology Entrepreneurship Certificate?
Visit the Extension website: www.extension.ucsb.edu and click the 'Certificate' tab and select 'Technology Entrepreneurship'. There will be information on the certificate requirements as well as a link to the application.
How do I enroll in an Extension course?
Visit the Extension website: www.extension.ucsb.edu and click the 'Certificate' tab and select 'Technology Entrepreneurship'. At the bottom of the page, the Extension course offerings are listed with links to enrollment.
Is there a Certificate application fee?
Yes, there is a one-time fee of $150 payable to Extension.
How can I be sure that I have met the course prerequisites?
I received a 'B-' in one of the required TMP courses. Will this course still count towards the certificate?
Yes, you need a B average or better in all of the required courses with no grades lower than a C for any of these courses.
In what year can I start taking the courses?
The courses are open to all upper-division standing students.
I haven't taken Econ 1 or 3A and I won't have time to finish it before the end of the year. How can I get into ENGR X130B New Venture Finance which is a required course?
The instructor is the only person who can override the requirement and let you into the course. The instructor will evaluate your overall academic record or experience to determine whether or not you have the skills needed to complete the course successfully.
