Student Initiated Projects

Student-initiated projects fall into two categories - Industry Funded and Student Funded.  An overview of student-initiated projects provides the basic requirements and the procedure for student-initiated projects.

Industry-funded projects are in general identical to other industry supported projects.  Typically these projects are suggested by a student to a company that the student has or is interning or a co-op student.

Student funded projects can come from anywhere.  For these projects, it is the responsibility of the student to provide funding for project-specific expenses such as prototype materials and fabrication.
