Students solve industry challenges through iProjects

by Alexander D. Chapin

Through the iProjects program, ASU student teams and their faculty mentors work with industry partners to address real-world challenges. How can pet groomers use less water? What can we do to make packaging more sustainable? Can we create a device that would allow any soldier to run a 4-minute mile? Through the program, students are putting the knowledge they gain in the classroom to work for real businesses.

This year’s teams presented their initial progress at the Fall Innovation Showcase on the ASU Polytechnic Campus, shown in this video.
