Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network

KEEN logo

The Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network (KEEN) is interested in fostering an entrepreneurial mindset in engineering students. An entrepreneurial mindset involves curiosity about our changing world, integrating information from various resources to gain insight, and identifying unexpected opportunities to create value.  The goal is for KEEN schools to identify, nurture, and develop entrepreneurially minded engineers who will contribute to our national economic prosperity and secure individual fulfillment through a lifetime of meaningful work. 

Since 2011, UNH has been an active member of a select group of institutions invited by the Kern Family Foundation to join KEEN. With the foundation’s and the network’s support we have initiated a number of exciting curricular and extracurricular activities. We invite you to learn about each through the following pages.

  • KEEN Online Modules
  • ICE Workshop
  • Engineering Challenges 
  • Entrepreneurial Engineering Living and Learning Community (EE-LLC)
  • Imagination Quest 
  • Engineering Curriculum Model
