Innovative Technology Challenge
Held every spring, the Innovative Technology Challenge is a semester-long interdisciplinary class where teams of students are immersed in creating, thinking, and cultivating new product prototypes, along with commercialization and marketing strategies, for specific industries. The theme of the challenge changes every year, keeping up with entrepreneurship's evolving trends and needs.
Representatives from the Tampa Bay business community judge and provide critical feedback to each team regarding creativity, functionality, and potential for taking to market. In the past, teams have even applied for patent licenses for their prototypes.
