About Us

Rose-Hulman Ventures represents a unique operational model for university/industry interaction. Clients seeking innovative solutions to industrial technology challenges engage our full-time engineering staff and a multidisciplinary team of student interns. We offer a cost-effective, market-driven approach to bring engineering design ideas to reality. Intellectual property always stays with the client and we maintain confidentiality.

Our project managers lead student interns on projects with client companies. The Rose-Hulman Ventures student intern experience reinforces and enhances classroom engineering knowledge through hands-on applications and interaction with project managers, student interns, and client company executives. Interns learn how to approach design problems in real-world context and dissect them, apply their engineering skills, and find innovative solutions.

We have a dedicated infrastructure that includes office and lab space, workstations, lab equipment, and software tools.
