This case study has been developed as part of the Engineering Subject Centre Teaching Awards 2009, from data gathered through observations of the teaching component; interviews with the tutor; a questionnaire to students and a student focus group. This study concerns a module in which students, working in groups, set up and run their own business for seven months. In doing so they learn about enterprise and entrepreneurship, and develop organizational, team working, communication, negotiation, and problem-solving skills. The students are second year undergraduates in either computer and networking engineering courses or an enterprise engineering course.
