Industry & Nonprofit Partnerships

Industry & Nonprofit Partnerships (INP) in the Texas A&M College of Engineering aims to develop strategic and sustainable partnerships with industry, nonprofit organizations and agencies with a focus on educational programs. Our goal is to provide engineering students with impactful professional experiences while simultaneously supporting our partners’ recruiting objectives. 

We invite you to schedule a meeting to develop a plan that meets your unique needs. Whether you’re interested in connecting with students from a specific major or across the college, we will assist in facilitating programs that meet your goals.

Below are just a few examples of engagement opportunities: 

  • Courses
    • Capstone Design Projects — Sponsor a capstone design project for seniors within a specific major or across multuple engineering majors. View our Engineering Project Showcase booklet for examples of past sponsored projects. Targeting seniors.
