Industry sponsored projects and our engineering entrepreneurship projects will be presented to all senior level engineering students. Objective of the presentations will be to showcase opportunities for students to join an industry or entrepreneurship project team for the 2017-2018 academic year.
The Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering offers a supportive education that inspires students to innovate, create, and ultimately make a difference in the world by practicing real-world engineering. To support and enhance this academic approach, the Industry Partnership Program partners with local corporate enterprises to give students practical, hands-on engineering experience that will help launch their careers and offers industry partners fresh, out-of-the-box ideas. Our entrepreneurship program helps students develop entrepreneurial skills and engages students in entrepreneurship and "intrapreneurship" activities.
In the fall semester, our corporate sponsors work with a team of four to five senior-level students to define the scope of the project. The teams are given a year-round assignment to create a project from concept through fabrication for the client, including tangible deliverables. Entrepreneurial projects involve a little more work including studying the entrepreneurship modules, working with external mentors, and making several pitches throughout the academic year. All students propose their ideas and then demonstrate their concepts at the end of the fall semester with a 2-D prototype. During the spring semester, in collaboration with their sponsors and mentors, the teams refine their conceptual designs and ultimately produce a final fabrication of a 3-D prototype, which is spotlighted in the spring Engineering Showcase.
