Expected to Launch in the fall of 2016: Master of Science in Technology Innovation

GIX logo The first dual degree, master's level program to be announced through Global Innovation Exchange (GIX) is a new model of learning designed to fuel innovation and foster collaborations on a worldwide scale. The UW and Tsinghua University program combines project-based learning in design thinking, technology development and entrepreneurship.

"Innovation requires you to understand users so you build the right thing, know enough about the technology to prototype it and demonstrate it, and know how to pitch it and convey its importance. This is going to be an intensive, integrated educational program in all these areas," said Shwetak Patel, chief technology officer for GIX and UW's Washington Research Foundation Entrepreneurship Endowed Professor in Computer Science & Engineering and Electrical Engineering.

The UW MSTI is currently under review by the UW Graduate School, which must approve all new degree programs.
