Partnership in Action

CCI presents the March 2020 edition of the Corporate Partners Program (CPP) monthly email newsletter. Thank you to our CPP members; we appreciate your commitment to building lasting relationships with students and faculty at Drexel's College of Computing & Informatics.

Call for Abstracts: Senior Capstone Project Proposals

CCI invites project abstracts from our industry partners for Senior Design Project, CCI’s multi-term capstone experience for all graduating seniors. Students form interdisciplinary teams of 5-6 students and adopt a project for the duration of their senior year (Sept-May) that fulfills the capstone requirement. Abstracts are being accepted now through June 1 for the 2020-21 school year. 

What should you expect as a project sponsor? Learn more from Professor Jeff Salvage, lead Senior Project faculty in this webinar recording (from last year, still relevant info) that includes an overview of what to expect as a project stakeholder, expectations of student teams, what makes a good abstract, and IP agreements.

Reach out to Kate Duncan ( with questions.
