Sponsor a Student Design Project

There are many benefits in sponsoring a student design project. You have the opportunity to interact with our students and introduce them to your company, while at the same time creating a real-world design experience that is meaningful to them and to your company. Our students also learn valuable skills as they put their engineering education into practice and interact with professionals from your company.
