How we work
Applied Research and Innovation Services (ARIS) begins with an initial project inquiry, where organizations define their technology-development needs. With a successful project inquiry, we'll engage in non-disclosure agreements and partner meetings with lead researchers.
Together, we will undertake project planning and budgeting and work with in-house grant writers to apply for funding. Once approvals are complete, the project will be executed, and student researchers will be engaged.
ARIS involves students in industry-based applied research projects through practicum placements, capstone projects, and as student research assistants.
Our Applied Research and Innovation Services (ARIS) research teams respond to the innovation needs of industry with a fast, focused, and flexible model.
