The Integrated Product and Process Design program seeks industrial sponsors for challenging year-long multidisciplinary design projects. IPPD affords client-sponsors outstanding access to senior Gator Engineering teams, regular communication with engineering faculty project mentors, and creative design solutions for important problems.
IPPD is an innovative educational initiative at the College of Engineering, University of Florida. Over two semesters (eight months), in weekly classes, we teach students from various engineering and business disciplines how to design products and processes. Then, working under the guidance of faculty coaches and industrial liaison engineers, our students design and build authentic industrial products. IPPD is in its seventeenth year and our proven development process has been successfully applied to 406 projects (with more than 2200 student participants).
