Benefits to the Sponsor

  • Value: For a modest fee, a small team of “almost engineers” will partner with you, supervised by both you and our faculty.
  • Tackle a Challenge or Explore a New Idea: Our sought-after students and faculty will assist you to research and analyze, conceptualize alternate solutions, design and refine a method, construct a working prototype, etc.
  • Strategic Recruiting: The program can provide a pipeline of talent to fill growing numbers of high-tech vacancies. Many sponsors are
    expecting a large percentage of their most experienced employees to retire soon.
  • Senior Design Students are Potential Employees: Sponsors have the opportunity to collaborate with, cultivate and evaluate undergraduate students as prospective employees. Senior Design Projects provide eight months to observe students’ performance and how they fit your working culture.
  • Access to UConn’s Expertise: Senior Design Projects give you access to expertise of UConn faculty, and state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment.
  • Visibility: Students will share their impressions about your organization.
