Introduction to the Program, Syllabi, and Confidentiality Agreement
Of course, some may ask why should they join this program? So far, we can count between 15 and 20 intern offers or job offers directly attributed to students meeting employers at Senior Design meetings and events. This was only in the 2006-2007 school year. Read more detail about what the program includes below:
Students will be required to sign a Confidentiality Agreement. Please print out two copies, fill out both and sign both. We will hand one copy back to you after it is signed by the Office of Technology Transfer.
Resumes/Cover letters (SD-1)
You will be required to apply for the project that you have an interest. The deadline will be at the beginning of the first semester of the program (Senior Design I). Make sure you have a good resume and cover letter so you can convey your skills for your desired project.
