About Us

Seattle University's Project Center

Established in 1987 as one of the first in the nation, the Seattle University Project Center is a collaboration between the College of Science and Engineering and the Albers School of Business and Economics. The Project Center links small teams of students with companies and nonprofit organizations to work on projects in areas of International Business, New Venture Business, Sustainable Business, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer, Mechanical, Civil and Environmental engineering. Applying theory to real life and producing real outcomes underscore the work of our student teams. Student teams, with the guidance of faculty, often work more than 1,000 hours toward completing an engineering project throughout an entire school year. Each MBA student provides approximately 100 hours toward completing projects in a quarter long project format.

About Us - Edit Metadata Image Only

The year-long senior design project through the SU Project Center strengthened the critical thinking skills I developed in classes to solve a real world problem. Constructing real-world deliverables helped to enhance my communications skills which are critical when pursuing a career in engineering.
