YOU DEFINE YOUR PROJECT

An External Relations Manager will assist you in beginning your project proposal. You will provide context for the project and define functional requirements for the end product. This is typically an iterative process with a couple of drafts to refine the preliminary project scope. This initial scope can be adjusted and modified throughout the project according to your needs.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Industry sponsors retain all rights to intellectual property developed during the project.

Public presentations are a key element in providing the necessary educational experience for our students. We encourage sponsors to file patents prior to presentations in order to enable a public forum. We work with sponsors to resolve confidentiality or proprietary issues prior to public presentations.
