HOW DO I ENGAGE NKU
STUDENTS AND FACULTY
ON INFORMATICS PROJECTS?

The new center has two avenues for project work:
 
1.    The center has the ability to take on a select portfolio of high-impact innovative regional and global projects that require a high level of sophistication. These will be handled by faculty-led student teams, often with corporate partners.
 
2.    The center can take on a larger set of basic small-scale projects as a means for beginning Informatics students to get exposure to real-world work as part of the college's professionalization courses. This serves as a precursor to traditional co-op and internship programs to which students will quickly progress.
