About sponsoring

We invite you to join us and experience the many benefits of the Integrated Product and Process Design program and see how your company can impact the future of engineering. IPPD projects should meet a specific need for your company and should involve both design and prototyping. Our project categories include electronics, machines and components, software, biomedical and processes. Companies will designate a liaison to interact with their teams, along with the contribution of an educational grant to cover project costs.
