Abstract

A $2.5 million grant from the NJ Commission on Higher Education sought to establish and sustain a viable link between undergraduates and industry partners, both members of the College's Advisory Board and start-up technology companies within NJIT's Enterprise Development Centers (EDC). This paper describes how this objective was realized through the development of the BS in Information Technology's Sandbox, home to our interdisciplinary team senior project course. Examples of recent industry/education projects are presented, and the managerial and administrative complexities that must be navigated to provide a credible outcome satisfactory to all stakeholders: students, faculty, university administration, EDC staff and clients, and industry advisory board project sponsors, are discussed.
