Corporate Sponsored Senior Projects Program

Baskin School of Engineering's Corporate Sponsored Senior Projects Program (CSSPP) fosters deep and valuable relationships with the Silicon Valley business community through student, faculty and corporate engagement.

  • Corporate Sponsors collaborate with faculty to define high-value senior design projects
  • Students are engaged in meaningful interdisciplinary team-based learning
  • Teams of 3-5 students work on the project for two quarters to fulfill their graduation requirements
  • The corporate sponsor provides a designated liaison as the team's customer
  • Sponsor and faculty together plan projects to ensure that schedules and milestones are realistic and that the deliverables are useful
  • Teams interact with sponsor to review project status and progress
  • Corporate sponsors can receive intellectual property rights to results developed by undergraduate students

Opportunities for students to participate in this highly competitive program are limited. Students should communicate with their professors early to learn about the application process.
