Program in Technology Commercialization

The Program in Technology Commercialization (PTC) is a partnership between the College of Engineering, the Department of Bioengineering, the Foster School of Business, the Law School, and the UW Center for Commercialization.

PTC aims to create an enhanced one-year program that will prepare UW students to understand, create and work in technology-based companies.

The PTC course sequence recruits students from programs in technological and medical departments and helps prepare them for the business world, in part through teaming them with students in the Schools of Business and Law. The primary aims are to create a better-trained technological workforce, to spawn new businesses in the region, and to facilitate technology commercialization developed at UW and partner institutions.

The PTC course sequence extends over four academic quarters:
