The Deans from the School of Business and the School of Engineering are holding a challenge competition for a Junior-level (graduating in 2015) student led team to develop a marketable product that addresses an important need in the local or global community.
Your multidisciplinary team must comprise at least one business major and one engineering major. The team size cannot exceed four students. For example: a CS major for software development, a EE or ME major for product design and prototyping, a BUS major for product definition and market development. The team must develop a profitable, revenue-generating solution to the problem it has identified. It will quantify market trends, product specifications,and demand; as well as identify and apply appropriate technology for a cost-effective solution.
This is an unique opportunity to have fun and be productive over your summer break! Each student will get a $4,000 stipend for the summer of 2014. Resources provided include rapid prototyping (including a state of the art 3D printer); a modest budget (up to $1000) for materials/supplies; and technical staff support to guide you. You will also be provided with an industry mentor experienced with innovation.
Results produced over the course of the summer should be the foundation for your capstone project during the 2014-2015 AY, and culminate in a pitch for the 2015 $100K Challenge Venture Competition.
