Space

Our talented students at the ACE Project Space work with Entrepreneurs and Organizations and realize ideas into real products.

Projects

Our students and project sponsors have been hard at work. Our project terms last four months at a time, where teams have the opportunity to find solutions to each project’s problem domain. This means that many projects start from an idea and end with a minimum viable product (MVP), and other projects build upon MVPs to develop additional functionality. We invite you to have a look below to find out more about the work our students have been doing, because what we are doing is working.

Taiv
