Innovation Labs in our new facility will give hands-on learning opportunities in a problem-rich environment. Our students will tackle real-word problems in interdisciplinary teams.
Our IBE students exercise their engineering skills in the IBE Innovation Lab through designing a workspace to build and modify a stock EV Go-Kart to harness technology for competitive advantage. They showcase their business skills by employing marketing skills to solicit sponsorships, financial skills for budgeting, and supply chain skills for sourcing and procuring parts. Their kart will be part of the first evGrand Prix race, set for spring 2023.
Students and faculty will thrive in additional labs that promote active learning, design thinking, and collaboration in business analytics, real estate finance, emerging financial technologies and more. Future lab projects include assessing drone-based solutions to solve problems (delivery of prescription medicine in remote areas, spare parts at construction sites, aid in search and rescue operations) and the development of new medical devices.
