Project Participation Opportunities

The CICE occasionally receives emails from WFU faculty or from people outside the University looking for students who might be interested in opportunities to work on innovative, creative or entrepreneurial projects to gain experience.

As we get notice of any such opportunities, we will post them in this space.  If you have interest in these, please contact the sponsors directly.  The CICE office is not directly involved with these.  The office is simply bringing them to your attention.
