Industrial Relations Partner Projects

The Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Computing place a high priority on working with industrial, government and business partners.  As such, we’ve established a variety of ways to engage with our students and faculty.  The engagement opportunities range from speaking with student organizations, attending career fairs, holding information sessions, participating in campus and virtual events, serving on advisory committees, sponsoring undergraduate and graduate research, and many others.  Listed below you’ll find examples of engagement with a number of our Industrial and Government Partners.
