About the Center
The Center’s mission, in collaboration with industry partners, is to provide a portal for directed engineering research and design projects. The purpose is to create a mutually beneficial research platform between ECS and local industry where students benefit from gaining practical experience explicitly related to a sponsoring partner’s domain and where industry partners benefit from potentially innovative ideas and product design from senior engineering students. Industry sponsors also benefit from having recruitment access to students who are already familiar with their organization’s research goals. These deliverables will be achieved by integrating the mentorship of industry experts with the interdisciplinary knowledge base of engineering students and faculty and through utilization of the College’s broad engineering capabilities through state-of-the-art engineering labs. Additionally, the Center will conduct pedagogical research into the impact of project based learning opportunities in engineering education.
