This research empirically identifies the attitudinal, perceptional difference towards entrepreneurial support provided to technical course students. It is evident that a supportive environment is a determining factor for the technical students’ orientation towards an entrepreneurial career. The objective of this paper is to identify the technical course students’ attitudes towards entrepreneurial support, their personal characteristics, and entrepreneurial experience. Data was collected through questionnaires from 100 students of a private university in India. Simple random sampling was used. The questionnaire administered gathered data like students self-confidence level, supportive systems provided by university, the infrastructure, and the awareness of entrepreneurial facilities provided by the university. The results indicate that, those students with high self-confidence were more likely to take up an entrepreneurial career. It was observed that the infrastructure provided by the university played a significant role in encouraging the entrepreneurial drive in the students.
