Working as a faculty advisor on student projects helps me to expose my students to an entirely new range of skills that they will need when they become practitioners in their chosen fields. Project management, teamwork, communication, translating academic knowledge to reality are skills that set our students apart. The partnerships we’ve built with sponsoring organizations provide valuable professional connections for students and faculty alike.

The Project Center at Seattle University is a win-win program. The Boeing Company gains the experience of working with the next generation of engineers with innovative approaches to projects, and the students gain invaluable experience of real-world engineering in a fast-paced atmosphere.
