A Winning Proposition
Partnering with the UA College of Engineering is a low-risk proposition with enormous potential.
- Accelerate R&D, especially for companies that may be resource-limited
- Grow and diversify your workforce
- Advance engineering education and training for your future employees
From global Fortune 500 companies to local startups, industry partners gain access to faculty expertise, labs and research resources and get early opportunities to hire the best and brightest UA Engineering students.
With expenditures exceeding $600 million a year, research is a cornerstone at the university. Whether you are a large company, small company, or somewhere in between, partnering with the UA delivers substantial benefits – specialized facilities and equipment, faculty expertise, and a talented workforce of students, for example.
In fact, strong academic-industry partnerships can form the backbone of federal research grants and contracts. Government seed grants – SBIR and STTR – are often ideal for businesses that have fewer than 500 employees and are seeking R&D support.
UA Engineering centers, institutes and labs serve a wide range of research areas – from hypersonic flight and quantum networks to minerals recovery, solar energy, biomedical devices and water treatment.
