The Transition of Engineering to Enterprise

Partnerships between the College of Engineering and American industry have risen dramatically over the years. Our programs consistently earn the respect of businesses in a variety of advancing fields. 

The College enjoys partnerships with more than 350 companies, agencies, and institutions -- with more than 150 of those located in Iowa alone.  Also, new companies, established on Iowa-based research, flourish in a healthy Midwestern business climate.  Prospects are strong for those now incubating in the growth-oriented environment of the Technology Innovation Center (TIC) at The University of Iowa Research Park.
