Applied Research Application
The College of Engineering and Computer Science welcomes the opportunity to partner and enter into other mutually beneficial collaboration with industry and other parties.
The College has had a long history of working with the community to solve problems. As we continue to grow, we are able to increase our ability to support solving industry and organizations' issues. These issues, projects or programs can be small or large efforts.
Examples of some areas we have helped in include:
- Energy & Carbon Measurements
- Materials Testing
- Nuclear Projects
- Engine Testing
- Power System Testing
- Personal Transportation
We welcome the opportunity to discuss how the college of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) can work with you and your company to achieve greater success.
Capstone and Student Projects
We enjoy solving problems. The CECS welcomes company input in order to begin a dialogue toward a project in partnership with CECS faculty. These projects can be for a single semester or multiple semesters. Student projects are much more rewarding if they relate to real-world problems where they are able to creatively approach possible solutions. In addition, companies can gain improvement to programs, designs, and processes than can save significant time and money in some cases.
Projects are evaluated by students and professors for selection. Students receive credit in their coursework for their project. Companies are typically expected to provide review and guidance to assist in the performance and completion of the project while also allowing time and space for students and faculty to work creatively. The sponsoring company is expected to provide funding for project materials and, if necessary, relevant travel costs. The level of support and involvement is agreed upon by the company, student(s), and professor prior to project launch.
Project Partnership Application
Submit the form below to let us know you are interested in partnering on an applied research or design project. A CECS team member will reach out after the deadline dates (listed below the form) to connect you with the academic department that will be evaluating your proposal.
The deadline for Applied Research Requests is November 1 for Spring Semester start and May 1 for Fall Semester start.
The University reserves the right to bid any and all purchases associated with these projects, and must adhere to UT procurement policies.
