Corporate Partnership Program

Corporate Partnership Program

We believe partnerships between industry and universities benefit everyone involved. Corporations provide advice, access to equipment, and financial support that makes it possible for students to participate in extraordinary experiential learning projects.  A large number of those students will become valuable employees within the very firms that supported the projects on which they worked.

Partnerships between faculty members and industry are just as important.  These relationships help UGA Engineering faculty prepare students for real world, applied engineering challenges.  These partnerships also ensure the discoveries our researchers make will move out of the lab and into the market…a beneficial situation for all involved.

Through our Corporate Partnership Program, we seek to generate annual financial support to help foster collaborative partnerships with local, state, and national industry members.  We believe the intersection between private and public initiatives has significant potential to yield solutions to our greatest engineering challenges.
