Notre Dame California

Notre Dame California accelerates opportunities across Notre Dame, especially for students in the Master of Science in Engineering, Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Program, who are well-prepared to leverage the broader connections with companies in the heart of 21st-century technology and innovation. The multi-pronged plan includes establishing career opportunities and internships for Notre Dame students and graduates with both large companies and fast-growing startups in the Silicon Valley area and beyond.

Notre Dame’s heightened profile in the leading center for venture capital and philanthropy also aims to attract significant funding for startup companies based on faculty and student discovery, as well as create innovative partnership for further research and discovery. Many of the 7,300 Notre Dame alumni in the area are participating enthusiastically in the initiative that will strengthen networking ties in the state.

“This is a natural step for Notre Dame as we build a world-class entrepreneurial ecosystem,” says College of Science Dean Greg Crawford, who will lead the initiative as Vice President and Associate Provost beginning July 2015.  “We will be engaged with people who are on the leading edge of technologies that will have a global impact, and we will bring our virtues and values into these important conversations.”
