An example of how entrepreneurship can be integrated into Design-Build-Test (DBT) project courses is presented. The example is taken from the engineering program Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering at Linköping University, where entrepreneurship has been introduced in ten different DBT project courses related to the specializations of the program. The purpose of the entrepreneurship part is that the students shall acquire knowledge and abilities within the general area of entrepreneurship with particular focus on business planning for new ventures. The organization and execution of the entrepreneurship activities are described in detail together with a summary of the experiences from the first year. The results of the entrepreneurship activities within the project courses are positive and will be further developed, with emphasis on the connections between project ideas and technical contents of the courses.
