Bachelor of Arts in Design, Technology and Entrepreneurship


What will I learn?

The new Design, Technology and Entrepreneurship (DTE) program at Illinois Wesleyan provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to conceive, develop, and deliver products and services for industry, society, and the planet. This uniquely interdisciplinary program incorporates creative and technical skills, material science, and finance and management.
