Team Projects are unlike internships in other programs. Team Projects are specifically designed for Tauber students and target substantive operations issues with business and engineering components.
A typical team consists of 3 Tauber students, with at least 1 business student and 1 engineering student per team.
Both to test and demonstrate your skills, you need responsibility and the opportunity to succeed. Instead of showing how well you can maintain the status quo, you'll work toward integrating business and engineering disciplines to make your sponsoring company faster, smarter, and more efficient for today's competitive landscape. Companies work in concert with the Tauber Institute to build special projects for you that can showcase your ability to make a difference in a team environment.

Upon project completion, all teams compete in the annual Spotlight! Team Project Showcase Scholarship Competition. Spotlight! is a highly competitive event where all teams present project results to corporate representatives, students, alumni, and faculty.
Senior-level executives from industry serve as judges and evaluate projects based on scope, implementation, impact, overall presentation skills, and other criteria to determine the winners of approximately $40,000 in scholarship prizes.
Note: Some sponsors restrict team projects to domestic students.
