Mission and Vision


Utilize the specialized and unique professional engineering resources to establish and organically grow a center for engineering innovation that focuses on translational development work, bridging the gap between basic science and engin┬Čeering innovation and commercial product development.

This center will be instrumental in:

  1. facilitating sustainability and success of existing businesses and future startups,
  2. maturing and de-risking technologies and thus increasing IP and commercial value, and
  3. developing and growing (larger scale) contract funding for sponsored research and development in Utah.

Mission and Activities

In micro, nano, and system integration we are offering to:

  • Mature technologies and increase IP value through prototyping
  • Support on and off campus technology commercialization activities with technical/engineering know-how
  • Advise faculty and student inventors on commercialization
  • Offer opportunities for student and faculty participation and skill development in translational development and engineering
  • Engineering/prototyping and support for existing commercial or federal contracts
  • Team building and bidding for large procurement style government contracts
  • Service for local industry through contract engineering/research/development
  • Support early stage (SBIR/STTR type) engineering/development and proposals
  • Support small businesses and startups with fast access to professional support
  • Connect entrepreneurial researchers across college boundaries
