Our mission is to help you realize yours.

Our Vision

The Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship Program is an initiative comprising curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular entrepreneurial resources developed by the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta. 

The ICE Technology Incubator is part of our experiential learning offerings and integrates with campus makerspaces to provide a dedicated space for students and recent alumni interested in commercializing technology and launching new start-ups and social ventures. 

As part of our curricular programming, we currently also offer an introductory course on entrepreneurship for students looking to gain a foundational understanding of how to plan, design, and build a tech start-up.

Our Commitment

We recognize that innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship at UAlberta is constantly evolving. Using Agile Development Methodology, ICE aims to deliver the highest value program in the shortest time relying on iterative feedback from all our program stakeholders.

Through all aspects of programming, we are committed to:

  • Centering the student experience and user feedback 

  • Failing fast and iterating often

  • Adding unique value vs. duplicating existing resources 

  • Championing collaboration and integration across the UAlberta innovation ecosystem

  • Fostering welcoming, inclusive, and accessible communities and spaces

We thank the Poole Family, Triffo Family, and other generous supporters for their contributions to the ICE Program.
