The four-semester MBA/MEng program is fully integrated, with students taking courses in both business and engineering. Special interdisciplinary courses will also be offered for students in the concurrent degree program. An integral part of the program is an interdisciplinary capstone project in which student teams will grapple with real-world challenges faced by companies or nonprofit or governmental organizations involving an array of business and engineering issues. Students in the program will have special extracurricular opportunities, including small-group meetings with executives from major technology-oriented corporations and start-ups, and tours at well-known companies in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The program was launched with the support of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd (TSMC) in honor of its founder, Morris Chang. Chang retired in 2018 after leading the company for 31 years. TSMC is now considered the world’s largest dedicated semiconductor foundry.
