Learning from Experienced and Innovative Faculty

And, they’re ready to share their trials and errors and successes with you. They stay relevant in their fields by seeking industry partnerships and learning best practices. Be guided by faculty in the Southeast Innovation Challenge, Start-Up Pitch Competition, or an Artificial Intelligence Hackathon.
