ME Partners support the education of students and the mission of the department by bringing industry connections and enabling project-based learning.
ME Partners do the following:
In return, ME Partners get:
The Design Center Colorado (DCC) fosters innovative, technical collaborations with business, industry, and government agencies. One DCC initiative involves bringing projects to undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical engineering where integrated teams of 4 to 6 undergraduate students (3 to 4 graduate students), a faculty advisor, and an industry mentor develop workable solutions. Student teams work on assigned projects for two consecutive semesters and deliver tested, functional hardware and documentation to the industry sponsor at the completion of the project.
Benefits of sponsoring a project:
The number of faculty members in the ME Department continues to grow upwards from 46. Faculty members are eager to collaborate and have varying capabilities and areas of expertise in research areas including Air Quality, Biomedical, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanics of Material, Micro/Nanoscale, Robotics and Systems Design and Thermo Fluid Sciences.
