This summer, a newly launched Invention Accelerator, modeled after Invention Factory, will train undergraduate Syracuse University students to “design, prototype, and pitch” as they invent tangible products. A collaboration between the College of Engineering & Computer Science, the College of Architecture, and VPA’s School of Design, this immersive, six-week program will be held on the SU campus and at the SU Fisher Center in New York City.
Student applications are closed for Summer 2017.
The Accelerator follows a proven method of developing students’ abilities to innovate and communicate. Students will learn about design, ideation and intellectual property, then conceive an original invention, prototype the invention, and refine it in response to weekly feedback from diverse audiences of guest evaluators.
