Resources for Enterprising Engineers

Faculty, staff and students in the UA College of Engineering are commercializing discoveries through licensing inventions and launching startups that strengthen the Arizona and U.S. economies. Many are relying on Tech Launch Arizona’s market research, business and licensing expertise, industry contacts and I-Corps and Asset Development programs to get their ventures off the ground.

The UA has been named an Innovation and Economic Prosperity University for its programs supporting inventors, entrepreneurship and tech transfer.
