The Innovate to Grow program

Innovate to Grow (I2G) is a unique “experiential learning” program that engages external partner organizations with teams of students who design systems to solve real-world problems. The Innovate to Grow program encompasses the following experiential learning classes:  Engineering Capstone, Engineering Service Learning, and Software Engineering Capstone.

The Innovate to Grow showcase

At the end of each semester, the work completed by the student teams culminates in the Innovate to Grow event, a showcase of UC Merced student ingenuity and creativity, and the marquee event for the School of Engineering.

This Spring 2021 we will feature student presentations online.

WHEN: Friday May 14, 2021 (tentatively 11AM stay tuned for updates)

Message from the Dean

Welcome and participation instructions, Mark Matsumoto, Dean, School of Engineering, University of California, Merced.
