Overview

Each year the Wichita State University Foundation develops relationships with professionals in local business and industry to secure sponsorships, which enable monetary awards to be given to teams whose projects meet the company’s stated criteria. Sponsors get involved to recruit and share information about their organization while helping to encourage new and innovative projects from WSU students. These sponsors send representatives to view the projects and interact with team members to make an informed decision about who will receive their award. Presenting a quality product and the ability to communicate in a professional manner is the goal for every project team because this allows students to gain experience presenting to local business and industry in preparation for their future career in Engineering or Computer Science.
