The Dean’s New Faculty Advisory Council (NFAC), the Polytechnic School and Engineering Dean’s office invite you to attend the Innovation Showcase reception and exhibition to see creative solutions to a variety of engineering and technology problems.
You can also sign up to volunteer at Innovation Showcase on Thursday, April 27, and Friday, April 28, 2017.
Students collaborate with industry partners in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area and worldwide to create solutions and meet tangible industry and societal needs. Innovation Showcase enables our student creators to produce, refine and develop new inventions, new methodologies, new creations and new ideas.
Innovation Showcase provides an arena in which students can tackle real problems, push the envelope, collaborate across lines, learn from failure, cultivate imagination and curiosity, experience new possibilities, participate in an overarching entrepreneurial energy and change perceptions. It fosters the process of invention, creation and revolution, creating generations of intentional innovators as well as generations of cutting-edge innovations. The program also reveals the evolution and continual process of innovation, highlighting diverse high school, undergraduate, graduate, and faculty projects. From a very first creative venture to a complex solution to a provoking problem, Innovation Showcase presents and explores the intersections of disciplines, solutions and passions from a variety of viewpoints.
