The University of Tennessee Knoxville (UTK) department of Integrated Engineering Design is currently seeking companies to sponsor senior design projects. Projects proposed for the IED program should meet a specific need for your company and should involve design, prototyping, and consideration of financial impact. Project categories can include electro-mechanical systems, biomedical systems, aerospace systems, civil/environmental/chemical/manufacturing systems and processes, and application/web/embedded software.
These projects will begin in the Fall 2020 semester and continue through the Spring 2021 semester.
"We look for authentic back-burner and exploratory projects—ideally with about a 500-600 hour scope, pay-back-period of less than a year and a positive NPV," says Director of UTK's Integrated Engineering Design program,Dr. Keith Stanfill.
These project teams are made-up of senior level students from Tickle College of Engineering and Haslam College of Business. If a company has a product design need that they don’t have internal resources to conduct, this can be a great way to increase their new product development capacity.
Benefits of being a sponsor of a design project include:
