Additional NotesThe Integrated Product and Process Design program is an innovative educational initiative at the College of Engineering, University of Florida. Our students work in small multidisciplinary teams under the guidance of faculty coaches and industrial liaison engineers to design and build authentic industrial products for sponsoring companies. The program was first launched in August 1995 and in the 20 years since, over 475 projects--sponsored by more than 110 companies and agencies--have been undertaken by over 2500 students.
