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 expectations of the students and the project faculty mentor.

We are currently soliciting commitments from companies interested in participating in the program for Fall 2024. Each company supporting a project is requested to complete the Fall 2024 Senior Design Project Input document.

The Senior Design Supporter Requirements includes the Project Description Form. For an example of this form completed by an industry supporter please click here

Having trouble understanding what a project can consist of ? Check out the Senior Project Guidelines.

Each student must also sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement so that there are no industry secrets divulged in the student reports. If you have any questions concerning Non-Disclosure or Intellectual Property we are very flexible and willing to work with you.
