Corporate Engagement-Integrated Innovation - Carnegie Mellon University

Corporate Engagement

The Integrated Innovation Institute offers various touch-points for corporate engagement with our students and faculty, pairing our innovation processes with industry needs in the areas of sponsorships, recruiting and executive education.

Sponsor a Project

The Integrated Innovation Institute partners with industry leaders throughout our intensive coursework to bring new product and service opportunities to life. Sponsored projects have resulted in more than 15 patents, and our corporate partners are diverse in industry, including healthcare, transportation (auto, truck and airlines), consumer goods, and industrial-safety equipment.

Our approach allows our partners to gain valuable insight into a current challenge they are facing, while also having the opportunity to engage directly with our qualified pool of student innovators. At the end of the project, student teams develop form and function models and marketing and manufacturing plans for the product concepts.
