This semester we completed seven real-world consulting assignments with four major companies – Braskem, GE, Alcoa, and PPG Industries. In January each client tasked their respective student team with a real-world challenge . After semester-long research, meetings, and prototyping the final client presentations wrapped up last week. Each team is extremely proud of their final deliverables, and one client shared that they were left “speechless” by the group’s work. Having the ability to sit at the table with business executives and discuss pressing issues within their industry is an educational experience that not all programs have the ability to offer.
