Implementing Industry Supported Projects provides information on the implementation of a Senior Design Project.  It also includes the expectations of the industry supporter during the project as well as the expecations of the students and the project faculty mentor.

 
We are currently soliciting commitments from companies interested in participating in the program for SPRING 2018.
Each company supporting a project is requested to complete the Senior Design Supporter Requirements document.
 
The Senior Design Sponsor Requirements includes the Project Description Form.  For an example of this form completed by an industry supporter please click here for an example.

The Senior Design Program Participation Agreement with Supporting Companies includes the Intellectual Property Agreement so that there are no industry secrets divulged in the student reports.  If you have any questions concerning Intellectual Property we are very flexible and willing to work with you.
 
Each student must also sign a Non Disclosure Agreement which is provided to support the company.
