Sponsorship Benefits

For our students, interaction with real-world companies, like yours, is vital. One of the most important ways they receive that interaction is through a practicum project. During these projects, students apply their classroom knowledge to solve your real-world problem. Your project can cover virtually all aspects of engineering management, including engineering leadership, project management, risk and financial management and supply chain logistics. Your project is key, as students learn how to approach complicated situations and make decisions for success.

For each practicum project, students work throughout the semester in small teams, culminating with a presentation of their key findings and recommendations to key executives at your company. These recommendations frequently provide real cost reduction and process improvement benefits. Project sponsors gain working relationships with students and an inside track to future recruits.

Maybe Sponsoring a Senior Design Project is a Better Choice

Becoming a senior design sponsor is rewarding for both you and the undergraduate student team. Sponsorship is an opportunity to work with students who can analyze your proposal and provide a valuable solution.

To help you better understand, We have provided guidelines on what to expect from your student team. We have also listed what we want to see from you, our sponsor. So explore some of our past senior design projects and we look forward to working with you soon.
