student fellows, interns and graduates
In addition to its state-of-the-art facilities, a key benefit of the Incubation Program is its ability to connect incubator companies with University faculty and students. As part of its program, the Incubation Program advertises to suitable students and helps recruit them to work as fellows, part-time employees or interns.
