In this talk we present non-traditional, radical university arrangements that we implemented in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at FAU to create an Entrepreneurial University. To produce successful engineers our thesis is that they should be involved in the applied industry projects. This “re-conceptualization” involves non-traditional, often radical university arrangements. We will present our entrepreneurial, research, and innovation strategy The backbone of our new concept is the NSF-sponsored Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for Advanced Knowledge Enablement with 45 industry members, a more than 50 applied research projects. The university has created a Research Park with more than 20 high-tech companies and an incubator with more than 30 start-up companies. In the main part of the talk we present several successful projects by our faculty and students that resulted in creating start-up companies, patent inventions, and successful products and services.
