Centre for Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology Transfer (CEIT)


Welcome to Entreprneurship and Innovation@HTU

In response to the charge by policymakers around the world on academic institutions to push for cultures that promote entrepreneurship, business proprietorship and new venture

creation, HTU has accepted the challenge and has been pushing and promoting innovation and entrepreneurial activities in its own small way.

All HTU students are offered entrepreneurship development course for at least two semesters. Our special bachelor of technology program in Technical Engineering Entrepreneurship,

which is specifically designed to support the youth with technology/engineering background become technical and/or business entrepreneurs is scheduled to commence in 2020/2021

academic year.

HTU is also proud to set up the Centre for Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology Transfer (CEIT-HTU) and have established HTU Innovation and Business Incubator.

What we are trying to do at CEIT-HTU is to create a BIZ (Business and Innovation Zone) in the University.

The Centre is intently encouraging our students, staff and the youth in the University’s sphere of influence to innovate, turn their imaginations into reality and create businesses. We

earnestly wish as many as possible of our graduates, apprentices and other youth come and get businesses started from the BIZ and stay in the Region.

Stimulating innovation and entrepreneurial activities in this manner is one surest way the Region can develop.

The University therefore warmly welcomes creative entrepreneurs to come and take advantage of the smart tools and support services being created in the BIZ to start, manage and

scale up their businesses.
