The BS degree in Innovation, Leadership and Engineering Entrepreneurship (BS ILEE) program is intended for engineering students (including Chemical Engineering) to better understand the innovative processes involved in identifying complex technical problems and creating, developing, and leading efforts to provide for their engineering solutions. A unique aspect of this degree is the inclusion of project-based experiential credits, whereby students must earn four and no greater than 16 credit hours of experiential learning. This is credit that is approved, supervised, and coordinated by an Illinois faculty member. At this time, the BS degree in ILEE is only available as a dual degree for COE students. While engineering students are able to solve problems, the ILEE Degree will provide students with the skill sets necessary to find problems worth solving.   http://tec.illinois.edu/academics/degree
