The College of Engineering at the University of Iowa is proud of our many partnerships with industry. Hallmarks of these collaborations include our success in connecting students with employers and our ability to deploy cutting-edge research in real-world settings. College alumni have gone on to start many innovative companies which have transformed healthcare, construction, and communications among many other fields. 

The College enjoys partnerships with more than 350 companies, agencies, and institutions -- with more than 150 of those located in Iowa alone.  Also, new companies, established through Iowa-based research, flourish in a healthy Midwestern business climate.  Prospects are strong for those now incubating in the growth-oriented environment at the University of Iowa Research Park.
