Getting Started in Enterprise
1. Figure out your course number.
How many semesters do you have remaining at Tech, on campus? This will determine which course number to register in. Then, find the section number and CRN on the Schedule of Classes.
2. Get permission.
Every semester, you must seek permission to join or continue in Enterprise. Use the fillable Approval / Waiver form for permission to enroll in ENT project work EXCEPT for ENT4950 (see below). Select “Special Approval” and then see the Enterprise advisor:
BMSE – Blue Marble Security – Dr. Glen Archer, EERC 629
WCE – Wireless Communication – Mr. Kit Cischke, EERC 520
RSE – Robotic Systems – Dr. Jeremy Bos, EERC 623
Open Source Hardware – Rick Berkey (M&M 722E) & Shane Oberloier, EERC
AE – Aerospace – Dr. Brad King, AE registration instructions, MEEM 1014
3. Turn in the form.
Email the completed, signed approval/waiver form to the Student Services Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or bring to the Registrar’s Office. Once the Approval has been entered, you will be able to go into Banweb and register in your Enterprise.
Meet with your Academic Advisor if you are uncertain which course number to register in for project work, to stay on track with your graduation semester.
