Abstract

The number of innovation and entrepreneurship activities in engineering educations are growing (Rae & Melton, 2016). Innovation and entrepreneurship activities can be categorized as being “About”, “For”, “Through” or “Embedded” (Pittaway & Edwards, 2012). Even if different forms of innovation and entrepreneurship activities in engineering educations exist, they all have in common that the innovative process is by nature iterative, where problem understanding including conceiving the right problem to solve are central activities (van Boeijen et al., 2014; Hurmelinnea-Laukkukanen & Heiman, 2012).
