The New Product Design and Business Development program connects leading companies with exceptional University of Minnesota graduate students to develop valuable new products.

Throughout a 9-month project cycle, each client company sponsors a team of engineering and business students in connection with a specific product. Drawing on guidance from their client, faculty coaches, and industry advisors, student teams work independently to conduct background research, and to develop a working prototype and an accompanying business plan, which the client then carries forward to launch.
